"Tells the story of Ilya, a prostitute who lives in the port of Piraeus in Greece, and Homer, an American tourist, a classical scholar enamored with all things Greek. Ilya is a character close to the "hooker with a heart of gold" cliché. Homer feels Ilya's life style typifies the degradation of Greek classical culture and attempts to steer her onto the path of morality. It constitutes a variation of the Pygmalion story, but in this case, the male character is not just trying to create, or shape, a mate that he can then consider suitable for him, he is also a cultural colonialist/tourist. Even though he only has book knowledge about Greece (ancient Greece, that is), and speaks no Greek, he purports to teach a native Greek, about who Greeks are"--Wikipedia (July 2006)
