Lawrence Durrell was one of the best-selling, most celebrated English novelists of the late 20th century. The Alexandria Quartet is unquestionably his most admired work, at heart a sensuous and brilliant evocation of wartime Alexandria. In this world of corrupt glamour, L. G. Darley attempts to reconcile himself to the end of his affair with the dark, passionate Justine Hosnani - setting alight a beguiling exploration of sexual and political intrigue that the author himself described as 'an investigation of modern love'.

A Psychoanalytic Study of Lawrence Durrell's The Alexandria Quartet - Rony Alfandary Summary

A Psychoanalytic Study of Lawrence Durrell's The Alexandria Quartet: Exile and Return focuses on the dialogue created by literature and psychoanalysis in an individual's quest to explore existential issues, such as a sense of belonging to a homeland and a recurring sense of the Uncanny (heimlich). Rony Alfandary explores Durrell's attempt to recreate a sense of belonging to a homeland, which perhaps never existed but can be retraced and reinvented through writing. This book studies some issues present in Durrell's work: the connection between biographical and fictional elements in the study of literature the influence of early Freudian theoretical themes upon the writer later influences including post-modern and hermeneutic theories The life and work of Lawrence Durrell can serve as a prototype of a man's quest for meaning, in a world caught in turmoil in the period between and during the WW2. The author's psychoanalytic exploration of the work and its relevance to human experience today, shows how the themes Durrell dealt with remain relevant. Alfandary highlights the ways in which his usage of several author narrative styles exemplifies the divergent and often contradictory nature of "Truth", emerging rather as multi-layered, multi-voiced and often torn sense of human subjectivity. A Psychoanalytic Study of Lawrence Durrell's The Alexandria Quartet: Exile and Return demonstrates Durrell's strong influence by psychoanalytic thought and will appeal to both psychoanalytic and literary scholars.

Lawrence Durrell's "Alexandria Quartet" in Its Egyptian Contexts - Michael V. Diboll Summary

In Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet in its Egyptian Contexts, Dr. Diboll argues that Durrell's tetralogy is the most important English novel of the mid-nineteen-fifties, an historically significant period which has been much overlooked by literary scholars. It convincingly demonstrates the importance of the Alexandria Quartet as a Janus text which looks back to the lost world of the British Empire, yet anticipates many important aspects of later post-colonial and postmodern writing. Thus, the book insists, the Alexandria Quartet should be recognised as a colossal work of literature, standing astride the nexus separating the colonial and post-colonial moments, a paradigmatic text for scholars of Empire studies, late Modernism, literary postmodernity, orientalism and post-colonial literature. This wide-ranging work explores the influence of all of the many strata of Egyptian history on the Quartet and in doing so offers a sustained meditation of the interaction of time, place and exile on the literary imagination. psychological alienation of this third generation Anglo-Irish-Indian, an English pied-noir from a most unheimlich English homeland, the effects of Durell's voluntary exile in Greece during the inter-war years on his literary sensibility, and psychological and existential impact of Durrell's flight from the Nazi occupation of Greece and his four years as a refugee in war-time Alexandria, which he experienced as an Oriental Other starkly juxtaposed to his free Hellenic world. This work does not neglect to examine Egyptian responses to the Alexandria Quartet, and it examines with a forensic thoroughness the way in which the public life realities of emergent Egyptian nationalism are subtly embedded in what for too long has been considered to be a work of fantasy. Seeking to go beyond the Saidian Orientalist paradigm, the book proposes that aspects of Bhabhaian hybridity theory, combined with a rigourous socio-historical analysis, offer the most effective theoretical insights into Durrell's seething Alexandrian cosmopolis.

(Re)constructing Reality - Linda Stump Rashidi Summary

Among the most brilliant fictional works of the twentieth century, Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet is at once a culmination of modernist literature and an exploration of the conscious construction of truth and reality. Structured to reflect Einstein's relativity theory, the Alexandria Quartet is an intricate interweaving of linguistic resources. Using M. A. K. Halliday's systemic linguistic theory of text analysis, (Re)constructing Reality probes the inner workings of Durrell's masterpiece to bring us closer to an understanding of how meaning is created. In the process, this book provides insight into both the Alexandria Quartet itself, as well as into the linguistic nature of literary composition.
