The Murderess: A Social Tale

Alexandros Papadiamandis
Translated by Liadain Sheridan
Edited by Lambros Kamperidis and Denise Harvey

Nineteenth Publication in The Romiosyni Series

“From its first appearance in 1903 The Murderess has been regarded as Papadiamandis’s chef d’oeuvre. The author himself assigned to it the subtitle ‘a social tale’ and this designation led the general public, and the critics, to focus attention on its realistic and other social aspects, whereas its principal concern is the primordial power of evil—or, to be more precise, the particular quality evil has of disguising itself as good. Scrutiny of the power of evil is arguably a most apposite subject for a modern social novel. It is the prevailing theme in Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment and in Stoker’s Dracula, both translated into Greek by Papadiamandis, but there is a significant difference in the treatment of the nature of evil in these two works: in Crime and Punishment evil takes hold of Raskolnikov’s entire being, leading him to cathartic repentance through a complex process quite unlike the one experienced by Papadiamandis’s murderess, while in Dracula Lucy and Mina are unwittingly and innocently possessed by the malevolence of a living death.”
