Toda a intriga, todas as complexas relações que essas personagens tecem entre si, passam a ser vistas pelo prisma político de um mundo que se avizinha a passos largos da guerra.

♥ Book Title : Justine
☯ Full Synopsis : "'I have been thinking about the girl I met last night in the mirror: dark on the marble-ivory white: glossy black hair: deep suspiring eyes in which one's glances sink because they are nervous, curious, turned to sexual curiosity.' The tragic story of the mysterious and fascinating Justine, and those whose lives she touched in pre-war Alexandria, is told by her lover, an impoverished Irish teacher who has sought refuge across the Mediterranean in Greece. It is undoubtedly a love-story, but the real heroine of the book is its setting: Alexandria, the city 'which decrees that its women shall be the voluptuaries not of pleasure but of pain'."Article| Lawrence Durrell| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Revolt of Aphrodite
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Revolt of Aphrodite consists of two novels, Tunc ('then', 'next') and its sequel Numquam ('never'). When Felix Charlock, an inventor, is approached by Merlin's, an influential and successful firm with interests everywhere, something about the extremely generous offer makes him hesitate. But as time goes on, he finds himself tied to 'the Firm' both personally and contractually - and disentangling himself will cost more than he knows... With a cast of tantalising characters, the two novels take the reader from Turkey to Greece, from Switzerland to England. Enigmatic and engrossing, with a marvellous sweep of action and ideas, the novels show Durrell is at his most gothic and comic, and most widely allusive."Article| Lawrence Durrell| Statement ..."
