about

Although Louis de Bernières is a famous and important contemporary novelist, and his work Captain Corelli’s Mandolin has been translated and sold all over the world as a best-seller, there are few academic studies that focus methodologically and theoretically on it. The book attempts to partially overcome this handicap by focusing on various thematic and structural aspects which have been practically ignored so far by this line of criticism. It targets experts and students in literary studies whose concerns are ancient myths and their contemporary revival and reimagining, and who are familiar with goals and methods of myth criticism and archetypal critical discourse, and especially with their current postmodern and postmodernist perspectives.
Tatiana Golban is an Assistant Professor in English and Comparative Literature at Namik Kemal University (Turkey). She is author of several articles on the subject of mythical writings from the Antiques to modern times. Her main research interests include literary myth, ancient and modern drama, and contemporary fiction.
