Zorba al-Yunani زوربا اليوناني

By: Kazantzakis, Nikos (1883-1957) نيكوس كزنتزاكيس / Tr: Jubaili, Khalid

Language: Arabic


Translated to Arabic, «Zorba the Geek» by Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis (1883 - 1957), widely considered a giant of modern Greek literature. The classic novel first published in 1946 is the story of two men, their incredible friendship, and the importance of living life to the fullest. Zorba, a working man, is a larger-than-life character, energetic and unpredictable. He accompanies the unnamed narrator to Crete to work in the narrator’s lignite mine, and the pair develops a singular relationship. The two men couldn’t be more different: The narrator is cerebral, modest, and reserved; Zorba is unfettered, spirited, and beyond the reins of civility. Over the course of their journey, he becomes the narrator’s greatest friend and inspiration and helps him to appreciate the joy of living. Translated to Arabic by Khalid al-Jubaili.
