[...] George Panagiotakis undertakes to continue the attempt to approach Kazantzakis` mind. A passionate admirer of this major Cretan literary figure and charmed by his multi-faceted contribution to the Greek literary world, he has painstakingly researched his work.
The work is successful since the writer has achieved a well-rounded presentation of Kazantzakis` work, not least by referring back to major past researchers.
Thus, the present research is not only worthy of high praise but also an essential guide for those who would like to experience once more the Kazantzakean values through a complete work, rich in arguments, presented in an elegant style.
