The issue of war and peace in the works of Antonis Samarakis (Master thesis)

Παπαβασιλείου, Αναστασία

The great ancient historian Thucydides finds that there is a close relationship between the dipole war against peace and human and social morality: "in times of peace, and when there is relative prosperity, both the states and the individuals are more well-meaning for each other, because they are not in despair of extreme need that has not come to their will. The war, however, which takes people's feet under the feet of the ease of winning their daily lives, teaches them the cruelty and intensifies the indignation of many according to the situation where it brings them."This passage by Thucydides characterizes the human existence over time, even today, in the twenty first century, as the horror of the war continues to plague the mankind. His horror is summed up by Pindar's lyrics: "sweet is the war for those who did not try it. But those who have tried it, their heart must tremble before it comes. " Disasters, strong weapons, military forces, psychological pressure are some of the central features of the war. War is the one that raises violence, distancing itself from moral values and ideals, alienation among people and, above all, the lack of respect among people. In the opposite of this concept, peace lies. Harmony, order, security, spiritual, economic, social development, and friendly coexistence among people, constitute the spectrum of peace.In this paper an attempt is made to present the issue of war and peace as it is presented through the works of Antonis Samarakis.In particular, the work deals with the war and its impact on human society. Our realization is limited to the works of A. Samarakis: Hope is wanted, Refusal, Passport, Signal of Risk, Conflict and In Name. These works show the issue of war and peace and how it affects people.Each of them is approached separately and then we examine it and analyze it as to the elements of war as delivered in the text. At the same time, and where is possible, we present the image of peace or the horror of war on the works. At the end of this paper there will also be conclusions.
