Commemorating sixty years from the passing of Nikos Kazantzakis
McMurtry Auditorium Duncan Hall, Rice University
Houston, December 3, 2017, 6:00 p.m.
Alex Kalamarides, Ph.D.
More than an emblematic writer from Greece, sixty years after his death the Cretan Nikos Kazantzakis (1883-1957) endures as an international icon, celebrated through the famous cinematic – and occasionally controversial – renditions of his later novels, such as “Alexis Zorbás”, “Christ Recrucified” and “The Last Temptation of Christ”. In spite of the acclaim, critical opinions regarding the merits and meaning of his works have always diverged. In this commemoration, we will explore the philosophy, challenges and lifestyle that underlie Kazantzakis’ legacy, and will reflect on the eternal messages Kazantzakis has for all of us.
