    After an absence of 7 years or so we return to Alexandria during the last year of WWII with the reliable Darley as narrator It seems that Durrell actually intends to give us some resolution to this multi faceted

    To finally have finished the fourth in this amazing uartet of books feels like a journey of sorts I have really adored being emersed in the lives of this group of individuals thrown together through public and political life in a backdrop of exotic Egyptian locations and traditions starting in the romantic 1930's through to wartime

The magnificent final volume of one of the most widely acclaimed fictional masterpieces of the postwar eraFew books have been awaited as eagerly as Clea the sensuous and electrically suspenseful novel that resolves the enigmas of the Alexandria uartet Some years and one world war was after his bizarre liaisons with Melissa and Justine the Irish migr Darley becomes enmeshed with the bisexual artist Clea T The final part of the uartet and it s been a wonderful journey Not uite as strong I thought as the other three It is set about seven years later Darley has been living on a Greek island looking after Melissa s daughter with Nessim Balthasar arrives with information and writing from the late Pursewarden Many of the aps from the previous novels are filled in Darley returns to Alexandria reuniting Nessim with his daughter He bumps into Clea and begins a romantic relationship with her It is Clea and her relationship with Darley that takes centre stage The uartet seems to hang together as a result of this novel and the prose is still wonderful There were one or two ends that didn t uite convince me Justine for instance but on the whole again Durrell has created a masterpiece Darley is as short sighted as ever when it comes to his romantic entanglements The events of the war intertwine this novel and Alexandria is in the hands of the Free French There are some neat comic touches the late cross dressing Scobie is now an unofficial saint and has his own feast day All of the main participants take some sort of bowDurrell indulges himself in all sorts of meditations covering art the novel and creativity set within the outstanding writing and the Freudian allusions The fragments from Pursewarden add a great deal and an edge of cynicism and weirdness At the centre of it all though is the nature of love and particularly how miserable it can make you The whole thing is a look at modern civilisation and its decadence I also think Durrell is looking at the nature of truth because he looks at events from several different angles and points of view making the reader uestion their original judgement The uartet is a great achievement and the prose so beautiful it defies description I enjoyed the first three slightly than this one but they stand alone as a whole

Out the tetralogy with grace beauty and stunning impact This rich exciting fare is Durrell's finest writing style a manner of writing few living authors can eual A magnificent achievement The Detriot News The reader is carried along on a current of superbly accomplished prose as flexible and colorful as that of any contemporary writer What Durrell has given us is well worth having San Francisco Chronicle Sadly I have come to the end of The Alexandria uartet It has been a revelatory reading experience and I now see why this dated collection is still read praised even lovedI found Clea the weakest of the four perhaps because Durrell is winding down as is the historic city of Alexandria These days it is considered an unsafe location for tourists During the time covered by Clea the British Empire s heyday is coming to a close In his inimitable way Durrell infuses all of this into a sad farewellClea who had always been a shadowy presence in the earlier novels now has her day She is an artist a painter Of all the women in the uartet she comes across as the most well balanced a sort of Earth Mother figure and the feminist of the bunch The nararator whom I assume is Durrell himself finally has a love affair with her He is older and wiser now but Clea is wiser stillThe EndThe Books of the Alexandria uartetJustine Balthazar Mountolive Clea
