Andreas Karkavitsas

Andreas Karkavitsas or Carcavitsas(Greek: Ανδρέας Καρκαβίτσας, Lechaina, Greece 1866 - Marousi October 10, 1922) was a Greek novelist. He was a naturalist, like Alexandros Papadiamantis.

He was born in 1866 in the north-west Peloponnese, in the town of Lechaina in the modern Ilia Prefecture. He studied medicine.

As an army doctor he travelled across a great range of villages and settlements, from which he recorded traditions and legends.

He died on October 10, 1922 of laryngeal cancer.

He is commemorated in a street that runs west of Papaflessa and Polytechneiou Streets (the old GR-9, Patras - Pyrgos - Kyparissia) to the western portion near the road to Lechaina Beach. By the intersection in a small square, a statue was also erected in bronze and marble.

Karkavitsas wrote in the European tradition of naturalism (exemplified by Émile Zola), which does not shrink from portraying the seamier parts of life among humble people, rather than romanticising or embellishing reality. He was a folklorist with a gift for spinning tales full of authentic details of simple people's lives, local customs, dialects and folktales, as well as psychological insights about them. He was more successful as a short-story and novella writer. "The Beggar" is a novella about con-men, violence and the grotesque practices of professional beggars (including purposely maiming children to turn them into profitable objects of pity). "Words from the prow" is about the lives of seafarers, fishermen and sponge-divers, full of arcane details of their craft as well as folk-tale-inflected plots of tragedy, shipwreck, hands lost at sea, murder, superstition and the supernatural, as well as the joys of making a living off the sea.
