About the Author

This distinguished novelist, poet, and translator was born in Crete and educated in Athens, Germany, Italy, and Paris, where he studied philosophy. He found time to write some 30 novels, plays, and books on philosophy, to serve his government, and to travel widely. He ran the Greek ministry of mostrar mais welfare from 1919 to 1921 and was minister of state briefly in 1945. A political activist, he spent his last years in France and died in Germany. Kazantzakis's character Zorba has been called "one of the great characters of modern fiction," in a novel that "reflects Greek exhilaration at its best" (TLS). A film version of 1965, starring Anthony Quinn, made Kazantzakis widely known in the West. Intensely religious, he imbued his novels with the passion of his own restless spirit, "torn between the active and the contemplative, between the sensual and the aesthetic, between nihilism and commitment" (Columbia Encyclopedia). Judas, the hero of The Last Temptation of Christ (1951) is asked by Christ to betray him so that he can fulfill his mission through the crucifixion. For this book Kazantzakis was excommunicated from the Greek Orthodox Church. The Fratricides, Kazantzakis's last novel, portrays yet another religious hero, a priest caught between Communists and Royalists in the Greek Civil War. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Conhecimento Comum



The lead-off article to start the discussion em The Arresting Life & Writings Of Nikos Kazantzakis (Dezembro 2012)


Στο τέλος της ζωής του ο Καζαντζάκης δημιουργεί το δικό του Ρέκβιεμ, μια βιογραφία όχι του εαυτού του αλλά των ιδεών του, της ψυχής του. Περιγράφει τα πράγματα που τον σμιλέψαν: την μητέρα του, τον πατέρα του, τον παππού του, την φωτιά, την θάλασσα, την Κρήτη, την Ελλάδα, τον έναστρο ουρανό, τον Χριστό, τον Βούδα, τον Νίτσε, τον Λένιν, τον Θάνατο, τον Ανήφορο. Ανοίγοντας το βιβλίο νιώθεις μια θύελλα να ορμάει να ξεφύγει απ'τις σελίδες, τις τελευταίες σκέψεις που θέλουν όλες μαζί να βρουν την ελευθερία τους, και σαν ξανακλείσει το βιβλίο, δεν γυρνάνε πίσω, αλλά ταξιδεύουν να βρουν σάρκα να φωλιάσουν. Ο συγγραφέας νιώθει πως έχει χρέος να δώσει αναφορά σε έναν άλλον Κρητικό, στον Ελ Γκρέκο, αλλά ταυτόχρονα δίνει αναφορά σε όλους μας, ελπίζοντας να έχει κάτι χρήσιμο να μας προσφέρει. Σε ευχαριστούμε Καζαντζάκη!… (mais)

Μοναδικό και ανεπανάληπτο σαν την ψυχή του Αλέξη Ζορμπά.

Painful. Gorgeous. Heartbreaking and full of light.

Brilliant. Challenging. Probably contributed to the unraveling of my childhood piety.
