The Knot as Metaphor in Gillian Bouras' Aphrodite and the Others
Flinders University Department of Languages - Modern Greek
This paper aims to discuss a central theme in the work of Australian-born author Gillian Bouras. The theme is the symbolic references to knots in her literature, in particular the text Aphrodite and the Others, and the use of the term knot as a metaphor for life’s experiences both from a Greek villager’s perspective and from a writer’s perspective.
