dc.description.abstractThis paper attempts a generic comparison between Kazantzakis’ most celebrated novel and the medieval genre of hagiography. With references to the original Life of Alexis and to other canonical hagiographical texts I demonstrate how the generic conventions and the communicative purposes of hagiography are exploited in the dominant genre of the novel. Bakhtin’s theories on parody and speech genres will form the theoretical framework of the reading.en
