Abstract

Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet consists of four novels: Justine, Balthazar, Mounolive, and Clea, generally concerned with the same characters, experiences, and events in and around Alexandria, Egypt. The author has designated one character, L.G. Darley as the writer-protagonist of three of the novels. Mountolive, the single exception, presents an omniscient author's view in which Darley is a minor, third person figure.
