A.R. Ragavis: A Politically Committed Writer of the Nineteenth Century by Litsa Chatzopoulou.

Literature is not just the art of writing. Like every art it is also a game whose degree of seriousness varies with the writer’s intentions. Emmanuel Roidis (1836 - 1904), a witty and cultured writer –indeed, beyond the average reader of his times– with marked persistence disguises his writing in a play on words.


Obscure citations, distorted references, equivocations, anagrams, and plagiarisms weave an intertextual ‘plot’ that forms a second text that invites various interpretations and readings. It is this second text that enriches the first with a different, often unexpected content that leads the reader down a convoluted path to the writer’s enviable yet difficult position.

Stavros Kritiotis, a scholarly writer distinguished for his fascination with the pleasure of intertextuality, in exemplary fashion digs up, records, evaluates, and exposes the complex intertextual techniques, tricks and hidden nuances of Roidis’s writing, like those whom Roidis himself defined, in Pope Joan (1866), as “the drawers of his opinion”.
