There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I have read many books about Greeks and Crete and Turks. My mother’s mother kxzantzakis from there, born just after the last Cretan rebellion against the Ottomans.
Even so, the fierceness of the enemies, the ferocious fighting, the adamantine resistance of the freedom fighters astounded me. I asked myself if I could survive in that hate-filled and violent environment. What would I have been like if I grew kazantzkis and married into such a patriarchal and rigid society? And yet I grew prouder of my Cretan blood.
#31: Freedom or Death by Nikos Kazantzakis
Freedom or Death, Don’t Tread on Me: Kazantzakis is not for the faint at heart. And he is worth every page, with his brilliant descriptions of freedoj country, the times, the historical events, and the dark and wild interior of people’s hearts.
Read it three times and probably will again.
I am fascinated by the language, the atmosphere and everytime I find something new. Print is set in very small type.
I was kind of surprised not to see any reviews on this amazing novel by Nikos Kazantzakis. Let me start by saying that I ‘ve read this novel only in the original Greek version. Nevertheless, I feel I can comment on the content and the feelings that this “journey” inspired me. I originally felt that you have to be Greek to really feel the intensity of the ideas that storm through this story that takes place during the Greek Revolution era ‘s against the Turkish oppression in the island of Crete.
However, any reader can rise above the distinctive historical and cultural context which with marvel you will experience its description and get swept by the powerful ideas of love for one’s home, love for one’s family and such love for one’s freedom that death is a duty.
The fight for freedom is an idea that can be symbolized in many aspects of our lives and that sadly has now become a very commercial and misunderstood concept. It is in this book however that I read about it being given in its purest form as the ultimate fight for an idea that is nikoss precious than life itself.
The title of the book encompasses its substance: The writing by Kazantzakis is greatly colorful with beautiful details that create the reality of kazantzaois time. At the same time, his writing is very affecting; being a Cretan himself you can see his deep love freexom his home testified on the pages. This is not an easy read, I feel you need to be in a specific mood to engage in this book since it requires your nikps to be present and not just your mind. It is emotionally drenching, the human struggles both psychological and physical, inner and overt depicted are fiercely touching and the glorious and bloody climax builds up in a ceremonial way.
In the end of this book I trully experienced a catharsis, for the first time at such strength, having gone through so many emotional stages with the characters and the plot of the story. As in other Kazantakis books, people might find sexist elements or even misogyny, but bear in mind the historical era and the patriarchic structure of society at the time.
I realize this review is quite personal, but I just felt the need to share kazajtzakis thoughts and feelings about this masterpiece. Approach this novel with an open mind and an open heart and I assure you, you will be rewarded.
Excellent book, I own an old dog-eared copy. Why can’t I find a Kindle edition, too? See all 5 reviews.
