Description

Few places have shaped as many sensibilities as the exotic, mythical city of Alexandria. Jane Lagoudis Pinchin's gracefully written book describes the profound influence exerted by the spirit of Alexandria and the Alexandrian poet, C. P Cavafy, on F,. M. Forster and Lawrence Durrell. Originally published in 1977. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
