This unique collection of work by Lawrence Durrell brings together a vast range of unpublished and ephemeral material spanning his entire writing career, illustrating the diversity, candour, depth of interests and humanity, humour, philosophical imagination and critical and aesthetic vision of one of the twentieth century's leading poets and novelists.Illustrated throughout with photographs, cartoons by Lawrence and Nancy Durrell, manuscript notes by Durrell and memorabilia, Lawrence Durrell's Endpapers and Inklings 1933-1988 provides the general reader, the specialist and the book collector with an unprecedented insight into Durrell's creativity and literary craftsmanship.This volume contains: "Durrell on Miller" (his lifelong admiration for Henry Miller); "Dramas and Screenplays" (including Black Honey, his melodramatic farce on Baudelaire and his mistress, and his screen treatments for Cleopatra and for Oedipus the King); "Essays, Lectures and Review" (including "The Minor Mythologies", Durrell's essay on popular literature and his 1974 lecture on James Joyce's Ulysses). It also includes "Incorrigibilia" (spoofs from the juvenile writer to the elderly sage, with Bromo Bombastes, Durrell's squib on Shaw's Black Girl, unavailable since its private publication in 1933) and "The Asides of Demonax", Durrell's final valedictory notebook, crammed with apercus, jokes and profound reflections on life, beauty and death.
