Literature of Greece[edit]

Should this be at literature of Greece? Possibly a can of worms, but... Say a book is published by someone this year in modern Greece. Where would information on it be? Our current standards claim Literature of Greece, I think, but having Greek literature and literature of Greece separated on chronological grounds seems silly. Any ideas?

Yes, what has China done? Koyaanis Qatsi 05:52 17 Jun 2003 (UTC)
Chinese literature seems to include old stuff all the way to Amy Tan, and Literature of China is empty. Maybe the best solution is to move them both to literature of and include everything in the nation's history, the if literature of ancient Greece needs to be separated out, it can be. Tuf-Kat

Does 'greek literature' imply 'ancient greek literature'?[edit]

In its current state, the Greek literature article seems to imply that information within should be available solely for ancient Greek literature. As such, one has to ask whether or not the term 'Greek literature' implies 'ancient Greek literature', excluding modern Greek literature (however minor, albeit documented [1] [2], this phenomenon may be)?

Thank you for your input,

This article is supposed to give a coherent overview over the periods summarized in the "Greek literature" box at the top, viz. Ancient, Byzantine and Modern. The current list of authors is not helpful, we have list articles for that (Ancient Literature). Full coverage should be aimed for at the sub-articles, not here; thus, the lists should be replaced by something more flowing. dab () 13:44, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

formatting[edit]

In my browser the [edit] links for the first three sections all appear under, or rather in the middle of, the text for "Classical" - if I knew how such formatting was managed I would attempt a fix on my own, but I'll leave it up to someone (hopefully much) more qualified. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.244.70.102 (talk) 08:39, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Lost wikilinks[edit]

Recently I've been rewikifying most of the text, and it now seems to me as if someone (probably without meaning to) wiped out the wikilinks by pasting text from browser window to edit window. It seems that most of these wikilinks were already in the text as of Dbachmann's version of January 2006. By now it may be too late to find and revert the old edit that blew away the wikilinks (?); if so, I'd like to call for help in rewikifying this article. --arkuat (talk) 21:16, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Greek poetry article: Call for discussion[edit]

I think Greek Poetry should be a separate article. French Poetry, Spanish Poetry, and English Poetry all have articles, and the Chinese Poetry and Japanese Poetry articles are precedents for including traditions of poetry extending from ancient times to today in the same article. It should hardly need to be argued that Greek poetry as a whole is as important a tradition as any in the world, but I'll present the arguments if anyone doubts it. A Greek Poetry article would mean the the current Greek Poetry heading would have to be non-redirected (or whatever the technical term for it is,) which I don't know how to do.

Well, there's been no discussion of this, but at least there's no objection, so I tend to think I'll go ahead and put up at least a beginning for an article on Greek Poetry. The models will be the articles on Chinese Poetry and Japanese Poetry: an overview covering the whole time range, a rather short article for its subject, depending largely on links to other Wikipedia article for the details.
