Abstract: Please note: This article is in Greek. This article examines the notion of “place” in George Theotokas’ novels, a Greek writer and essayist. To be more specific spatial elements control functions in the novel because certain actions occur in certain places. The “place” illustrates the plot of the novels and contributes to the evolution of the characters, in other words as Genette wrote: the place speaks! The place internal or external, urban or rural, constructed or natural influences the behavior of heroes and determine their actions by giving its own symbolisms. My point of view and my remarks concern Theotokas’ novels — Argo (1936), Daimonio (1938), Leonis (1940), Astheneis kai Odoiporoi (1964) and Kampanes (1970) — in the way the use of many important landscapes and cities affect the way of thinking and acting of the characters and give us some important conclusions based on this textual material.
