Wissenschaftlicher Verlag Trier
MetadataShow full item record
This article explores the fairy tales of Penelope Delta, a Greek author who lived in Alexandria (Egypt), Liverpool, and Frankfurt before settling down in Athens. Delta’s interest in the development of demotic Greek, the cultural heritage of her country and the role of education led her to write, among other works, literary fairy tales (‘Kunstmärchen’). They – like her own upbringing and cultural background – reflect a hybrid status between Northwestern and Eastern traditions, blending Greek elements and Northwestern European fairy-tale motifs.
