This article examines the novel's point of view relating to the notion of homeland as a native land. We have chosen for that purpose two contemporary novels, a Greek and an Italian, aiming at searching the question by comparison. As for our methodology we move within the bounds of Sociology of Literature and we evaluate the narrative organization of the text as well as the sociological and linguistic approach, so that the results to be confirmed based on the same textual material. We conclude that their story criticizes the dominant view of the homeland as native land and proposes several ways to define it. The homeland is seen as time, action, the beloved etc. This attitude, which at the same time is been criticized, challenges the dominant conception of land, it would be classified as «alternative» and this sort of fiction as «alternative fiction».
