The research project aims at an integral and in-depth textual study of Lawrence Durrell's four novels compounding his "The Alexandria Quartet" ("Justine", "Balthazar", "Mountolive", "Clea") from a perspective able to substantiate a stylistic/rhetorical  analysis with a hermenutic approach relevantly, thought not exclusively, informed by postcolonial thought.
