Please note: this article is in Greek. Narrative techniques and the fantastic in Demosthenis Vouteras: Demosthenis Vouteras is a writer that led Greek critics to an impasse while trying to specify the quality and generic identity of his work. Thematic and structural peculiarity, as one of the strongest features of his literary texts, has many times prevented any attempts might have been done as part of a process aiming at the incorporation of the writer in a school, a literary movement or a philosophical current. During the years, many generic characterizations have been ascribed at Vouteras’ narratives but they were so various and diverged that made any further attempt of approaching and analyzing the texts looking just impossible, deprived of literary criteria. Nonetheless, we just may find a way of understanding Vouteras if we take into serious consideration the intense and strange commixture of realistic elements as well as the elliptic description and the allusiveness of his texts as data that impoverish the traditional way of representation and can lead us to a typology of synaeresis throughout a poetics of abstraction.
