Greekophiles are all familiar with Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis as well as the annoying little ditty played on many sites. Play Nothing against the music, I like Mikis Theodorakis, just not while trying to gather info from a web page.
Now the Nikos Kazantzakis Museum in Myrtia, Crete, near Iraklion has opened a permanent exhibition on Nikos Kazantzakis. He lived a fascinating life so I am sure this museum would be worth a visit.
While I found Zorba the Greek a great read with insight to Cretan culture, most of Kazantzakis’ literature is heavy going. For a quick and easy lesson buy the video. Cheers.
