“My Mother’s Sin”, an autobiographical short story written by Georgios Vizyenos in 1883 speaks of forgiveness, guilt and atonement in a confessional manner. The story's central figure is Annio, a sickly little girl, around whom the plot is developed. We follow the course of the girl's illness and the mother's vain efforts to save her, in order to redeem herself from a hidden sin. Absorbed in her daughter and her illness, the mother seems to have forgotten that she has three other boys, as well. After the death of her daughter, she proceeds to successive adoptions of little girls, evoking reactions from her remaining children.
