Le jardin des rochers by Nikos Kazantzaki Summary

Le jardin des rochers, écrit directement en français, est le plus ancien des grands romans de Kazantzaki. Dans une langue qui éclate déjà d’un étonnant lyrisme. l’écrivain confronte sa nature et sa sensibilité de méditerranéen à ce qu’il vient de découvrir du génie asiatique, immuable semble-t-il et pourtant alors en pleine métamorphose. On ne manquera pas de comparer cette rencontre de la race jaune à celle qu’en fit, presque à la même époque, un autre très grand écrivain, André Malraux. Mais si ces deux voyageurs laissèrent pareillement flamber dans leur œuvre les grands antagonismes de la condition humaine, l’expérience asiatique fut avant tout pour Kazantzaki l’occasion inespérée de suivre, au contact d’une humanité bouleversée, son propre itinéraire intérieur. Le thème essentiel de ce livre est celui de l’homme méditatif placé devant des hommes livrés corps et âme à l’action par la force du moment historique et parfois au détriment de l’âme. De là, sans doute, la cruauté de cette histoire, mais autour d’elle, quelle poésie et quelle sensualité ! Le moindre objet, le moindre visage, la moindre plante, tout est approché avec tendresse et humour, et presque avec une sorte de volupté physique. Peut-être touchons-nous ici à la véritable grandeur de Kazantzaki, car dans Le Jardin des Rochers, sa forme de participation au drame est tout intérieure : il est spectateur mais s’identifie aux personnages et devient, pour ainsi dire, leur champ de bataille. Or, durant toute sa vie, que fut la sainteté pour cet homme, sinon le combat lui-même ?

The Selected Letters of Nikos Kazantzakis by Nikos Kazantzakis Summary

The life of Nikos Kazantzakis—the author of Zorba the Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ—was as colorful and eventful as his fiction. And nowhere is his life revealed more fully or surprisingly than in his letters. Edited and translated by Kazantzakis scholar Peter Bien, this is the most comprehensive selection of Kazantzakis's letters in any language. One of the most important Greek writers of the twentieth century, Kazantzakis (1883–1957) participated in or witnessed some of the most extraordinary events of his times, including both world wars and the Spanish and Greek civil wars. As a foreign correspondent, an official in several Greek governments, and a political and artistic exile, he led a relentlessly nomadic existence, living in France, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Soviet Union, and England. He visited the Versailles Peace Conference, attended the tenth-anniversary celebration of the Bolshevik Revolution, interviewed Mussolini and Franco, and briefly served as a Greek cabinet minister—all the while producing a stream of novels, poems, plays, travel writing, autobiography, and translations. The letters collected here touch on almost every aspect of Kazantzakis's rich and tumultuous life, and show the genius of a man who was deeply attuned to the artistic, intellectual, and political events of his times.

Life According to Fred by Ernie Stech Summary

A young man from Chicago travels west where he is intercepted by Fred, a guru, on the banks of the Colorado River in Utah. Fred invites the young man to go on a journey. It begins with a soul quest in the Utah desert near Moab. He is introduced to Venus, a flesh-and-blood goddess who teaches him about the sensuous. Fred has the young man spend a summer at a small lake where he learns about fishing but more importantly about the real lives of ordinary people. There is also a stay with a cynical professor who holds strong views on the futility of communication. Finally Fred and the young man visit a Trappist monastery. This spiritual and bodily journey takes three years and results in transformation for the young man. Between each of the yearly experiences the young man goes on hiatus to Las Vegas and Phoenix. Eventually he finds his mission in life and his soul place and soul mate. Along the way he accumulates the wisdom of Fred in pithy sayings. Freds wisdom, offbeat but profound, includes lessons for everyone.
