  • [01] Victoria Hislop: Greece inspires me

    "I have no inspiration in England. In Greece I get inspired because there are stories and people I love, it is never quiet, there is always action," the writer of the best seller "The island" told ANA-MPA on the sidelines of the six-day events of the Art links exhibition.

    The British writer, who is living in Athens, said that "people living in London are every day afraid. I am not afraid in Patissia where I live."

    At a query on the return of the Parthenon marbles, Hislop noted that "the matter is complicated and not easy at all. When I visit the British Museum and see the marbles and thousands of people admiring them and afterwards I visit the Acropolis Museum in Athens and see only a few visitors, I think that, in the British Museum, the marbles may work as a promotion for Greece and a reason to visit the country. From an emotional point of view, I believe they should return home, but every time I discuss this issue with the director of the British Museum, he expresses his concern over the other exhibits of the Museum in case other countries follow Greece's example."
