Abstract

This article is about Greek-Australian women and their relationship as mothers and daughters; how these relationships developed? In what way they have been influenced by immigration? How does the concept of cultural memory is conveyed? The archetypal symbolism of maternal relationship reflected in the ancient Greek myth of Demetra and Persephone takes new dimensions through these fictionalized group of characters that represent the maternal relationships of Greek-Australian women.
