Durrell Library of Corfu - New Website

Message from Richard Pine, "on behalf of the Durrell Library of Corfu":

"This website, like the work of our predecessor, the Durrell School of Corfu, is dedicated to the lives and works of Lawrence Durrell and Gerald Durrell.

The website is structured in the following way:

- Notes Queries and Comments - this will be of special interest and use for anyone wishing to send a query, publicise an event or a publication, or comment on any aspect of Durrellian studies. We welcome exchange of views. For example, if you have an opinion on the tv series "The Durrells" (recently shown on ITV - UK and soon to be screened on Greek tv) let us know!

- Essays and Theses - this page gives the texts of essays and abstracts of many university theses. Contributions are welcome.

- Biographies - a continuing project, at present carrying biographies of Lawrence Durrell and Theodore Stephanides

- Corfu - a page dedicated to aspects of Corfu and the Ionian islands relevant to the Durrells

- Adaptations - details of screen versions of works by Gerald Durrell and Lawrence Durrell - the current widespread publicity to the UK tv series "The Durrells" is particularly lively, especially as a second series is planned and is to be accompanied by a tie-in book "The Durrells of Corfu" by Michael Haag..

- Publications for sale: we have copies of several books published by the Durrell School of Corfu which are available for cash sale.

- Bibliography - a comprehensive 125page bibliography of approximately 3000 works by and about Lawrence Durrell (a similar facility for Gerald Durrell is in preparation)

- Textbooks - the entire texts of R Pine's Lawrence Durrell: the Mindscape (2nd edn) and Brewster Chamberlin's Lawrence Durrell Chronology (revised 2016)

- Library catalogue - the holdings of books from the Durrell School of Corfu. A similar catalogue of articles, manuscripts, facsimiles etcetera is in preparation.

- Archive - a work-in-progress documenting the history of the Durrell School of Corfu 2001-2014."
