The Greek-centred ideal, faith in Greek potential and national revival were the main sources of inspiration in the work of Periklis Yannopoulos, Ion Dragoumis and Penelope Delta.

Periklis Yannopoulos. His (Neon Pnevma (New Spirit), 1906, and the unique Ekklisis pros to panellinion koinon (Appeal to the Panhellenic Public), 1907, reveal the application of his anthropogeographical theory and go to the extent of deifying the cult of Hellenic light and landscape. Their praises of Hellenism exceed all previous limits in declaring the superiority of the Greek race.

Ion Dragoumis expressed his own agenda for Greek nationalism, foreign policy and the concept of national integration. Under his nom de plume, Idas published short stories (Martyron kai iroon aima (The Blood of Martyrs and Heroes), 1907, inspired by the Macedonian struggle, Samothraki, 1909, Osoi zontanoi (Those Still Living), 1911, which are, as Linos Politis observes, 'the first examples of an internal psychology in Modern Greek literature'.

Penelope Delta,

inspired by the Great Idea and involved in demoticism and educational reform, she was motivated by the need to provide children with appropriate reading material. Her output inclueds such works as Ya tin patrida (For the Fatherland), 1909, Ston kairo tou Voulgaroktonou (In the Time of the Bulgar-Slayer), 1911, Sta mystika tou Valtou (In the Secrets of the Marsh), 1937, which are accomplished historical novels dealing with the Macedonian struggle, Paramythi horis onoma (Tale With No Name), 1910, an allegory that projects the possibility of the revival of Hellenism. She also wrote children's novels in an autobiographical vein. Penelope Delta was thus chiefly concerned with children's literature.
