Nikos Kazantzaki

Zorba is a real person Nikos met on one of his travels, and he was very impressed by him, so he wrote a novel in his name. What is striking in Zorba's novel is Nikos' ability to describe Zorba's personality in a lengthy, detailed and profound way, so that you feel for a moment that Zorba is the greatest person in this universe. What is distinctive about Zorba is that he loves life in all its forms. He does not mention sadness, but always remembers joy in moments of extreme sadness or extreme happiness. He dances his famous dance, (Zorba Dance).. In that dance, he jumps up for meters and takes advantage of everything around him. From humans or from tools and inanimate objects.

He narrates the character of Zorba, a person called “the president” who is a Greek person who wants to invest his money in a project, so Zorba convinces him that he can invest his money in a coal mine, but Zorba’s attempts to build an elevator that transports coal from place to place fails, but Zorba is full of life He does not despair, because Zorba needs tools from the city, so he takes all the money of the ""president""" and goes to the city, so he feels tired, enters one of the bars, and a ""prostitute"" approaches him, and he rejects her, and she makes him feel that he is less manly, but Zorba, who is aware of manhood, does not accept this behavior, and he dismisses All his money is on them, and he writes a letter to ""The Chief"" .
