Many histories deep: the personal landscape poets in Egypt, 1940-45
This book traces the history of a small group of British writers variously brought together in Egypt during World War II: Lawrence Durrell, Bernard Spencer, Robin Fedden, Terence Tiller, and Keith Douglas, and in particular the aesthetic values they expressed in the magazine Personal Landscape, edited by Durrell, Fedden, and Spencer. Also included is a consideration of Durrell's postwar Alexandria Quartet.
