Abstract: Please note: this article is in Greek. The theoretical and literary aspect of the roidian “narrative encyclopedia”: “Tois Entefksomenois”, “Istoria mias gatas”: This paper deals with the generic definition of “narrative encyclopedia” which was first introduced in Emm. Roides’ Papissa Ioanna in 1866. The roidian encyclopedia brings together different types of speech and at the same time it exemplifies the stylistical theory of the writer. The result of the above process is that the so called “pezografimata” (prose works) of Roidis, are turned into both literary and theoretical texts, which permits their reevaluation and their reinterpretation. The introductory text of Papissa Ioanna, which is entitled “Tois Entefksomenois” (“To the readers”), exemplifies the roidian stylistical theory and so it acquires — apart from it’s informative character — a literary hint. So the “Tois Entefksomenois” becomes a primary element of the main narration of Papissa. The counter-march (literature-theory) is followed by the text “Istoria mias gatas” (“The story of a cat”) which has a strong theoretical character, despite it’s literary covering. This theoretical character is brought on the surface through certain relative correlations, which transform the text into an allegorical narration. So, it turns out that the roidian “narrative encyclopedia” combines both theoretical and literary speech (and in some other cases the philosophical speech) and so it gets beyond the one-dimensional nature of other genres. By following the example of German Romanticism Roidis forms a new genre, which thematizes theory and at the same time it gains an exemplary value.
