Product Overview

"Bien''s book is at once a comprehensive intellectual biography of its subject, and the definitive synthesis of many years of scholarship. With the first volume, it offers the fullest study of Kazantzakis''s prodigious oeuvre ever published in any language. It admirably bridges the gap between readers worldwide who approach Kazantzakis''s work through translation and specialists with access to the originals, and to the huge bibliography of minor and secondary material available only in Greek. It establishes the standard in Kazantzakis scholarship and will be an essential point of reference for all future studies of him."--Roderick Beaton, King''s College London, author of "George Seferis: Waiting for the Angel, A Biography"

"This is a magisterial work, without equal in English or Greek, and promises to be the single most significant book on Kazantzakis for a generation, or more."--Richard P. Martin, Stanford University
