Alexandros Papadiamantis



The Greek Institute is please to announce the publication of the COLLECTED WORKS OF ALEXANDROS PAPADIAMANTIS (1851-1911), major Greek author, in CD-ROM form.

This collection is from the Greek Authors and Their Works Series produced by the Treasure of the Greek language Foundation in Athens, Greece, and is available through The Greek Institute in the United States, Canada, and Australia.

Papadiamantis wrote many short stories, novels, poems and essays.   His rich poetic language, themes and images, are profoundly rooted in the long history and traditions of the Greek people.

The CD-ROM contains all of Papadiamantis' works, including his many letters.   It also contains the Thesavros© program which facilitates the retrieval of texts, and the Athena Greek font.   The program runs directly from the CD-ROM and does not require installation on the hard drive.   All texts have been recorded using the Unicode system, which is compatible with all Windows applications.

Features of the CD-ROM:

a) All works appear in polytonic form (i.e. with accents and breathing marks) and may be retrieved according to alphabetical, chronological or thematic order.

b) All works are from the most reliable and complete edition that has been corrected and verified by The Treasure of the Greek Language.

c) When you begin the search program, a catalogue of works will appear including the bibliographical information of each edition available.   You may limit the catalogue of works by chronological or thematic criteria.

d) You may search for a whole word, a prefix, a suffix, any part of the word, or any combination of words using logical sentences (e.g. AND, OR, or NOT).   A wizard is provided here to guide less experienced users through the searching process.

e) You may search by entering the polytonic form of the word or using the Latin alphabet.   The Thesavros reader program also fully supports the use of Unicode characters.

f) Your search results will appear at the precise part of the text, with accurate reference to page and line.   The lemata (i.e. retrieval points in the text) will appear on the screen in a blue color for easy recognition.

g) You may select up to seven lines of text around the lemma you have retrieved and store your results or print them out.   You may save or print selected text in a ploytonic font such as Palatino Linotype and ArialMS, or the freely distributable “Athena” Greek polytonic font that is included with this CD-ROM – or in Unicode, which is fully compatible with all Windows Word Processors.   The Thesavros© program is compatible with MS Windows 9x, ME, 2000, NT 3.5+ and XP.

The Treasure of the Greek Language Foundation is dedicated to the research and electronic recording of the entire corpus works of Greek authors from Homer to the present.   It was established in 1992, and is located at 18 Thrasyllou Street, Plaka, in Athens, Greece.
