This is a detailed, even technical, analysis of Kazantzakis writings, based primarily upon Owen's research at Kazantzakis's personal library in Iraklion, Crete. Owens highlights how Kazantzakis was profoundly influenced by the "creative evolution" of Henri Bergson, and how Bergson's creative evolution was rooted in a notion of God postulated by the mystic Jacob Boehme.
