GARCIA ALVAREZ, César. The imaginary of infancy in the Turkish invasion of 1974. Byzantion Nea Hellás [online]. 2009, n.28, pp. 235-263. ISSN 0718-8471. doi: 10.4067/S0718-84712009000100011.
To begin with, a brief overview of Cyprus' recent history is presented, and after that, a deeper analysis of the imaginary of children in Greek-Cypriot poetry since the invasion of 1974. This article is the result of conversations of professor García with authorities of the Cypriot Government, poets, historians and people forcibly displaced from their homes, all of which took place thanks to a scholarship granted by the Government of Cyprus, for which the author is grateful.
