      Book Summary The story concerns the attempts of a fictional Greek village community deep in Anatolia in to stage a Passion Play - which, as the title suggests, ends up with their in effect re-enacting the events of Jesus Christ's trial, suffering and death. The name . FOREWORD The following commentary is based upon a letter I wrote in response to William Saunders of the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Saunders wrote a review of Book I of The Nature of Order that I felt completely failed to grasp the ideas behind it. Indeed he did not even discuss those ideas, positively or negatively. Therefore, I felt some treatment of those ideas.

      Kazantzakis revered St. Francis, and his book is largely faithful to the historical record, but it is also shot through with heavy doses of the writer’s complicated personal philosophy, which must be understood if we want to fully appreciate his novel. Nikos Kazantzakis was born on the island of Crete in   Niko has not yet started school at the beginning of the book, and by the end he is an adult. The story of immigration resonated with me and because I moved to Canada around the same time he did and was the same age as what he ended off at when I finished the book, I kept drawing parallels between my life and his/5(14).

      Nikos possessive nature showed itself every time Luca excused them for the night and he didn’t tamp down the fire in his eyes whenever they landed on her. She didn’t understand their relationship or why Dabria didn’t seem bothered by it but that didn’t mean that it was okay.   Ochman, H., Lawrence, J. G. & Groisman, E. A.
