This was one of the first modern Greek novels, and is a humorous account of a young Cretan shepherd's efforts to understand and conform to the social values of his parents' village. Manolis, having fled the humiliation and the spankings of school, grows up in the mountains tending his father's sheep until the urges of manhood drive him back tot he village. Ioannis Kondylakis, 1861-1920, was born in Viannos, Crete. He studied philosophy in Chania and taught in Modi on his native island. This is an anthropological novel in that Kondylakis, along with his contemporaries, sought to preserve the ways and mores of the Greek countryside by faithfully recording them in novels and short stories.
