Description:

New York. 1963. Simon & Schuster. 1st American Printing. Previous Owner’s Name Penned in Front, Otherwise Very Good In Dustjacket. 21. 382 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Seymour Chwast. keywords: February 18. inventory # 4974. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The people, the philosophies and the arts of the Far East had a special place in Nikos Kazantzakis' mind and a profound influence over his thoughts and work. In Japan-China he writes with passion and understanding of his experiences in Hong Kong, Kobe, Tokyo, Kyoto, Peking and Shanghai. The poverty and misery of China in the thirties; the menace of Japan, arming for war; the color, music, architecture, theater and literature of these two great nations - all come vividly to life through Kazantzakis' words. His first trip to the Orient was made in 1935, during the time of revolution and war, when the two countries were beginning the long struggle that ended, more than ten years later, in Japan's defeat and China's violent reformation. His second trip was made in 1957, in the company of his wife Helene Kazantzakis, who supplemented her husband's diary entries with her own journal of their last trip together. Japan-China is a brilliant panorama of the Orient, before and after World War Two, as seen through the eyes of a great writer and a uniquely perceptive observer. NIKOS KAZANTZAKIS was born in Crete in 1883 and died in Germany in 1957. Long famous in his native Greece, he received immediate acclaim in the United States as a master of world literature with the publication, in 1958, of The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel. Both Thomas Mann and Albert Schweitzer have called him one of the great writers of this century, and his books have been greeted with enthusiasm in almost every country in the world.
