    1. "Para alguns, entre nós, o implacável dia chegaDa grande escolha, da grande decisão De dizer Sim ou Não.Aquele que em si sentir a sede de afirmarPronuncie-se sem demora.Os caminhos da vida abrir-se-ão para eleNuma cornucópia de benesses.Mas o outro, o que nega,Ninguém o poderá acusar de falsidade,E repetirá cada vez mais alto a sua descrença.Está no seu direito — e, contudo, esta pequena diferença.Um "Não" por um "Sim" — afunda uma vida inteira."Konstandinos KavafisQuem pretende [...]

    2. The final part of the Quartet and it’s been a wonderful journey. Not quite 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 [...]

    4. This Precious Image"Mountolive", the third volume in "The Alexandria Quartet", initially alienated me, but totally turned me around."Clea" started in the same manner, but more patient this time, I let it work its magic. It fell into place much more quickly, and the rewards came sooner as well.Initially, I wondered whether it might be a grab bag of ideas and impressions stitched together as an afterthought to what might otherwise have constituted a trilogy.Even if it had been conceived of as a tr [...]

    5. In this final volume of the Alexandria Quartet, Durrell returns to Darley’s active narrative. Darley has now departed his Aegean island and returned to Alexandria, resuming his story there during World War II when the city is held by the Free French and is periodically being bombed by the Italians. Some of his old friends have died, but their stories are very much alive and inform the plot. Others have aged but take up their friendships with him. He and Clea, the enigmatic painter, become love [...]

    6. 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 story, so we revisit the same cast of characters, some now dead, some forever altered .'s difficult to even conjure up the first impressions I had of this exotic bunch.Of course, the emotional thrust of the story revolves around Clea, someone that we've only met obliquely in the earlier [...]

    7. Last of the Alexandria Quartet. I've quoted from the other three, so here's a bit of Clea: "A phrase of Pursewarden's came into my mind as I softly closed the door of the ward. 'The richest love is that which submits to the arbitration of time.' "Individually, any of the four is a gem. Altogether, the Quartet is magnificent. I don't love, or even like, Elizabeth Gilbert, but I read a quote of hers a bit ago about listening in a college freshman English class to some dude saying how Harper Lee wa [...]

    8. Sadly, I have come to the end of The Alexandria Quartet*. It has been a revelatory reading experience and I now see why this dated collection is still read, praised, even loved.I 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 s [...]

    9. Like all young men I set out to be a genius, but mercifully laughter intervened.Wow, I didn't expect such a sudden dislike. Allow me to retreat to my hutch to scratch together a review.

    10. Clea is the fourth and final installment of Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet. If you have not already done so, you should read the others—in sequence—before starting this one. I toyed with the notion of reading these out of order myself, but in the end I'm glad I stuck with the way Durrell presented them. And if you thought perhaps Durrell would run out of material after writing three other books on the same subjects quite the contrary; there are many revelations here, events not visibl [...]

    11. يا عمّى يا ابو الفانوسنوّر لى ها العتمةإن كان هناك تفسيران، على نفس القدر من الجودة، أو أكثر لفعل إنسانى واحد، إذن ماذا يعنى هذا الفعل غير أن يكون وهماً. إيماءة تصدر فى مواجهة الخلفية الضبابية للحقيقة، غدت ملموسة فقط نتيجة الطبيعة الخداعة للانقسام البشرى.حظى السىء – أقول- وج [...]

    12. To finally have finished the fourth in this amazing quartet 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 contrast between the British characters: Mountolive, Darley, Pursewarden and others, (many eccentric tales there), to the Egyptian wealthy socialites ,wealthy [...]

    13. “Clea,” the fourth volume of Lawrence Durrell’s “Alexandria Quartet,” opens with several years having passed since the events of the first three volumes. Darley, the narrator, is living on a Greek island with the six-year-old illegitimate daughter Nessim fathered with Melissa. After running into Balthazar and his Inter-Linear, he eventually heads off for Alexandria again with the child, full of both trepidation and anticipation about the past and the people he knew there.When Darley ar [...]

    14. Without question the weakest volume of the Quartet. I thought it had a really pointless, tacked-on, Godfather III quality. Durrell admitted in a Paris Review interview that he had a tendency to procrastinate and then work really quickly when he found himself in severe financial straits. "Ideally, had I not been short of money, I would have written the four, and matched them properly, because there are still quite a lot of discrepancies which will have to be tidied up if the thing is gathered. Bu [...]

    15. Incestuous[NOTE: This review is intended for people who have read at least the first three volumes of The Alexandria Quartet. I do not recommend starting the series with Clea, and these notes will not be helpful to those that do.]Lawrence Durrell set himself a huge challenge in his Alexandria Quartet: three volumes looking at the same events from different angles, and a fourth that would extend the story forward in time; he intended it as an analogy to the three dimensions of space and the one o [...]

    16. An amazing book and whole tetralogy! I wish more people would read this liberating non-judgemental book about personal life juxtaposed with war and history.

    17. There are four volumes in Lawrence Durrell's sumptuous, stupendous narrative experiment ("Alexandria Quartet') and taken as a whole, they will astound any sensitive reader. It is a one-of-a-kind literary experience which amply deserves all the sensation and renown which surrounded its original release. Durrell: erudite, wordy, perspicacious, sensitive. Writes with supreme adroitness towards both female and male characters. This particular experiment of his is the very last word in the psychology [...]

    18. It's difficult to articulate the incredible achievement Durrell has produced with the Alexandria Quartet, and this, the final novel and, in many ways, key to the series. As Durrell noted in the introduction to the second volume, _Balthazar_, his overall plan was based on the four-dimensional space of Einsteinian relativity physics, and this last volume, indeed, introduces, explicitly, the effects of time into Durrell's narrative, including all the ramifications time represents for interpersonal [...]

    19. Mountolive'den sonra, kitaba hala yeni karakterlerin girmesi ile aslında süregelen hikayenin ihtiyaç duyulan açıklamalarının bu kitabın ortalarına kadar açıklanmamış olması biraz can sıkıcı. Mountolive o kadar heyecanlı ve çözüm odaklıydı ki bu kitap biraz gölgede kaldı. Ayrıca herkesin birbirine sürekli yan gözle bakmakta oluşu da artık 4. kitapta biraz batmaya ve şaşırtmamaya başladı. Sonlarına doğru Clea ile ilgili olarak gelişen yan hikaye bile heyecanı [...]

    20. At first this final book in the series didn't hold up as much as the other 3 because requited love can be boring compared to the angst of requited. But oh! how lovely to settle into that flush of union of spirits and Durrell's poetry captures that transcendence. Plus it's vital to the complete series and the horror the soul experiences as it tries to assimilate the hate and ugliness of war. I only keep books that I love. And are worth rereading and while I doubt I will do that in its entirety - [...]

    21. Punto final al Cuarteto de Alejandría. La ciudad, sometida a los rigores de la guerra, es el escenario donde Darley y Clea nos llevarán hasta el ¿desenlace? de todas las historias previamente trazadas en los otros tres libros. Pero como gran reflejo de la vida, los cierres de las historias abren otras historias nuevas Lo que pasa es que ya no las veremos.

    22. En la última novela se desarrolla el final de cada personaje. En la anterior se deja ver que toda la historia tiene un motivo político. Y ahora se muestra a los personajes con todo la brutalidad de la realidad. Nessim tuerto , Justine sin su belleza, los dos solos, abandonados y fracasados, Leila muy lejos de Alejandría, Pombal enamorado de una casada, Mountolive enamorado de la hermana ciega de Purserwarden, Darley con Clea. Pero ya nada es igual. La guerra ha terminado con todo. La ciudad e [...]

    23. kristinsbookblog/Clea – the fourth (and final) installment in Lawrence Durrell’s Alexandria Quartet – returns us to the narrative style of Balthazar, and picks up where it left off.At the conclusion of Balthazar, Darley receives a letter from Clea, though since I read that novel almost a year ago I don’t have any recollection what that letter was about. But anyway, it was enough to prompt Darley, who had been living on an island with Nessim & Melissa’s daughter, to return to Alexan [...]

    24. A fantastic finale to the quartet. These four books are among the few literary works I would describe as astonishing. What an achievement. I plan to reread them soon.

    25. CleaClea is the denouement for the series the Alexandria QuartetFinished the book Sunday, April 19, 2009.The lives of Justine, Nessim, Narouz, Pursewarden, Melissa have all unraveled or ended. Pursewarden and Melissa are already dead. The first two books of the Alexandria Quartet were the foreplay, lovemaking and orgasm, these last two books; Mountolive and Clea are the climax, then the limp, flaccid state in which one reflects. By this time WWII is raging and the remaining characters are either [...]

    26. The finale of this quartet of books is pretty satisfying and (finally) has some gripping plottwists and romantic intrigue, including a James-Franco-esque handcutting scene that's pretty kick-ass. Books one, two, and four are in Darley's voice, so after the departure of book three, we're back to the over-the-top style begun in Justine. I liked Darley's observations about Egypt and writing (through Pursewarden) more in this book than in the first two, and I think part of my preference derives from [...]

    27. CLEA. (1960). Lawence Durrell. ***. If you haven’t read the first three books of Durrell’s tetraology, “The Alexandria Quartet,” then this book will be essentially meaningless for you. In it, Durrell has his protagonist and narrator, Darley, migrate from one of the Greek islands to Alexandria. The action takes place just before WW II. With him is Nessim’s illegitimate daughter, who is now six years old. When he and Nessim meet again, they begin to lapse into reminiscences of old times [...]

    28. Beautiful and problematic.(just like Clea herself?)Based on my understanding of Durrell's project, I didn't expect any sort of neat-and-tidy conclusion, and a good thing!The entangled and entwined characters, the metaphors (Freud!), the 'art'ey all come together and then move apart and then come together again, though not with any clear end in sight--even death does not provide any sort of finality.The human drama, in tandem with (or in some cases, in spite of) the political drama and the social [...]

    29. Clea is the FINAL chapter in Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet [my reviews for Justine, Balthazar, and Mountolive have already been posted]. As previously stated, this quartet just gets better and more & more interconnected the further into the series you read! Clea was my ABSOLUTE favorite of the Alexandria Quartet novels!In the ruse of returning Nessim's illegitimate daughter to him, Darley finds himself running into his comrades in Alexandria, of whom he has been formulating a novel. [...]

    30. Considering he spent the previous three books essentially giving us three different views of the same story while inserting various tweaks into what we knew or thought we knew along the way, I had anticipated that the fourth volume, which would finally move the timeline forward, would be a final revelation of sorts and reveal the real story behind all the events that we had seen previously. All the questions that abounded would be answered. What were Justine and Nissim really up to? Did Mountoli [...]
