The Ph.D. thesis investigates the use of metaphors and similes in Angelos Sikelianos’ poems. The author focuses on the semiotics of poetry and suggests that metaphors and similes can be either simple or complex. Based on analogy, the author analyses the paradigmatic relations between a sign and a signifier. The author argues for a paradigmatic code which highlights Sikelianos’ poetic themes.
