Pope Joan
 Emmanouil Roidis

Introduction and commentary by the editor Dimitris Dimiroulis
536pp.
Metaichmio, 2005
ISBN: 960-375-901-5

Emmanouil Roidis brings his expertise in the medieval tradition to the genealogy of the papacy in Pope Joan, a love story that contains elements of mystery and is pervaded by suspense.
Though Pope Joan was written in the nineteenth century, its mordant tone and sharp irony are perfectly in tune with our own era. Roidis takes a startlingly modern approach to his subject. He successfully balances fiction and a wealth of historical details, blending genres in a mix of literary essay, free-wheeling narrative and historical research.
The novel is self-referential – it comments on its literary sources, lays bare its narrative technique and explains its world – in a manner that prefigures the notions of intertextuality and structuralism that have dominated the literary scene since the mid twentieth century.
With his interrogation of political and social stereotypes, Roidis displays a critical spirit that has lost none of its original impetus and freshness.
