I'm sorry for the late reply,internet problems.
Personally i find ridiculous the fact that it was banned.To put it broadly,the book describes jesus as someone who is tempted between doing god's will and living his life as an everyday person and while on the crucifix he has a vision of how his life could have been if he hadn't followed god's will.Kazantzakis was a deeply religious person but he wasn't puritanical as the church.In the prologue of the book he states that when people read the book,they will love jesus even more.The church wanted to unchurch him but they eventually didn't.
It's great that you're learning more about them.I'm thinking of reading more of Hesse and Nietzsche.
Yes,with Willem Dafoe.Have you watched it?I haven't unfortunately because it's banned in Greece due to the church.
I wouldn't call it polite, you just sound a bit formal sometimes, I would say. Certainly don't go out of your way to become less polite!
So, I have changed my avatar again, but its not the familiar one. The avatar looks nice nevertheless.
Amazing helper in chemistry!
No one should be bullied anywhere, Kallisto
As you can see I'm supporting the anti-bullying week 2013. No one should be bullied in the internet in my opinion!
Thanks for sharing!I really like Hesse and Schiller.Germany has some of the best writers and philosophers in my opinion.
Great,i'll look at the thread
I find all poems by Cavafy and Kariotakis magnificent.The Last Temptation of Christ by Kazantzakis is one of my favourite novels,quite difficult though.Do you have German poems/novels you like?
I find them wonderful because they feed the reader with new thoughts,as literature does as a whole.What about you?
- About me
- As you can see, I come from Germany and living in a backwater. I'm here to speak with members whose native language is English (or foreign one). My goal is to become a legend of TSR, so I planned to write more than 10,000 posts. I'm serious!
What should I talk about me? I'm an honest, thoughtful and interested person who doesn't belong to certain parties, even though to certain sides of societies. I'm trying to keep my individual status as far as possible. And although I'm a German, I can be humorous indeed!
