From William Hampton’s Review in the New York Times
When Kazantzakis wrote this play, his view of Columbus must have been regarded as heretical, although it is now known that the explorer was not quite the hero once taught in school. The Columbus of the play is a mystical religious fanatic who had lustful fantasies about Queen Isabella and who was not above murdering a navigator to steal his charts of the Atlantic Ocean. He was driven solely by dreams of wealth and glory, and he expected to find an earthly paradise at the end of his voyage — gates of gold and pillars of pearl. Instead, he found the Bahamas.
