ACHIEVE WHAT YOU CAN! Nikos Kazantzakis, perhaps best known in the English speaking world as the author of Zorba the Greek, was a prodigious writer who produced a vast body of work in his native Greek language. Regarded by many as a deserving Nobel Prize winner, he expressed, through his novels, plays, poems, travelogues, translations and philosophical volumes, a worldview that was centred on the concept of man's ascent into ever newer and richer worlds. In this dramatic presentation of Kazantzakis' life and thought, Howard F Dossor has drawn on two major texts, Report to Greco and Saviors of God: Spiritual Exercises. In an original rendering into English the work takes us into the physical and historical world that Kazantzakis experienced but more importantly, it takes us into the beautiful and stimulating contours of the writer's mind. Howard F Dossor, who regards Kazantzakis as being among the most important of Twentieth Century writers, has lectured widely on various of his works and themes. Several of his lectures are available on YouTube on the World Wide Web and one of them, exploring the existential significance of the Kazantzakian contribution, is produced here as an Afterword to the play.
