Note of suicide (Master thesis)

Καπετανίδου, Παναγιώτα


In my thesis with the theme « The note of suicide: between literature and testimony», Ιattempt to give an answer to questions concerning the relation between suicide and literature and after I will focus on the farewell letters of Greeks and Foreign Litterateurs in 19th and 20th centuries. Starting with an overview of modern sociological and philosophical perceptions of the act of suicide and the extent to which writers as sensitive individuals are prone to it. Subsequently, I investigate the motives that prompted them to this act, focusing on the thematic and morphological characteristics of their last handwritten notes, in my attempt to shape the poetics of the suicide note. Following the chronological axis first to the Greeks (men and women) then to the foreigners who are autocrats I relied on the textual method in combination with the comparative method in order to comment on farewell letters. From the study of the last notes of the 19th and 20th centuries of Greek and foreign scholarly writers, we have found that their basic features, such as the adoption of a confessional and personal tone and style, and the use of self-referential speech are related to personal literature. However, I consider that most of the suicide notes are the simple testimonies or the last texts of the writer.
