And woven throughout are tales of the heroes at the heart of the Cretan self-image, like the proud sixteenth-century rebel George Kandanoleon, who fought the Venetian invaders to a standstill until he was betrayed at a wedding-feast massacre worthy of a tragedy by Sophocles or Shakespeare."--Jacket."@en ;
