Freedom and Death is Kazantzakis's modern Iliad. The context is Crete in the late nineteenth century, the epic struggle between Greeks and Turks, between Chrisianity and Islam. A new uprising takes place to rival those of 1854, 1866 and 1878, and the island is thrown into confusion yet again. In the village of Megalokastro a Cretan resistance fighter, Captain Michales, is matched by the Turkish bey, his blood-brother. The life of the local community continues shakily, but is disrupted by explosions of violence
The saviors of God : spiritual exercises by Nikos Kazantzakis( Book )

69 editions published between 1945 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a writer and philosopher, Nikos Kazantzakis struggled all his life with existential questions, once spending several months in a monastery in an attempt to attain a closer relationship with God. His relentless quest to understand the nature of life through travel, extensive reading, and constant conversation with a diverse array of compatriots ultimately led Kazantzakis to compose this book of "spiritual exercises" meant to help the reader achieve harmony between the countervailing human impulses toward an immortality-seeking asceticism and toward a more nihilistic and materialist view of death. As with all Kazantzakis's philosophical works, The Saviors of God sheds light on a mind uniquely suited to a nuanced examination of what it means to be human, and establishes a hopeful vision for a dazzlingly syncretic approach to spiritual life

Symposium by Nikos Kazantzakis( Book )

25 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The manuscript of this one of the earliest (1922) works of the author of Zorba the Greek and The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel, who lost the Nobel Prize to Albert Camus in 1957, was only recently rediscovered and published in Greece with the help of the author's wife. The editors offer various reasons why Kazantzakis may have "forgotten" it, but neglect the most obvious -- that Symposium was never completed to the author's satisfaction, that it is inferior to his later work, that he probably never intended its publication. Modeled somewhat along the lines of the Platonic forebear (Kazantzakis translated Plato), the modern symposium ("drinking party") brings together Arpagos, seeker after God and liberation, and three of his comrades -- the political revolutionary man of action, the poet, and the athlete -- and contrasts their "philosophies." The tension between the contemplative life and action is a major theme of both this and later books . Arpagos' story of his spiritual exploration takes the form of a highly rhetorical confession about his wanderings among the monasteries of Mt. Athos

"Nikos Kazantzakis' own deeply conflicting views on the Russian Revolution are at the heart of this novel set in a Russia still in the aftermath of civil war -- a Russia to whom the pilgrims of the world are drawn by the legend of Lenin. Among them is Toda Raba -- an African...who has abandoned his tribe and his gods -- whose sense of destiny is awakened by the Revolution, and who symbolizes -- in Kazantzakis' prophetic vision -- the rising of the African and Asian peoples from their centuries-long sleep." (New York Times, June 21 1964)
