New Athenian School
The term New Athenian School (Greek: ), also known as the 1880s Generation ( 1880) or the Palamian School ( ) after its leading member Kostis Palamas, denotes the literary production in Athens after 1880. It was a reaction against the First Athenian School and its main aim was the use of Demotic Greek instead of Katharevousa.
The influence of Palamas led many Greek writers who were using the Katharevousa, like Aristomenis Provelengios and Jean Moréas, to abandon it and adopt the Demotic.
Some general traits of the school were:

- M. Vitti, ? [History of Modern Greek Literature], ed. , Athens, 2003.
