This thesis discusses the case of the interwar Greek critic Aristos Kambanis (1883-1956), focusing on the intertwinement of literary criticism and politics. This intertwinement is apparent in Kambanis’s case, not only because his oeuvre includes both critical and political texts, but also because his political choices seem to have determined his marginalisation as a critic. The approach of this thesis is mostly historical and the chapter breakdown is based on chronological criteria. There are five chapters in the main part and each of them outlines Kambanis’s intellectual activities and output during a specific period from 1901 to 1956. Apart from providing biographical and bibliographical data concerning Kambanis, this thesis demonstrates moreover the multifacity and the significance of Kambanis’s works.
