About this item
A gift book of poems from the author of Corelli's Mandolin, Louis de Bernières, beautifully illustrated with line drawingsPoetry was Louis de Bernières’ first literary love and Imagining Alexandria is his debut poetry collection. Here the author returns us to the vivid Mediterranean landscape of his fiction. De Bernières was introduced to Greek poetry while in Corfu in 1983, and since then he has always traveled with a book of Cavafy's poetry in his pocket. Not surprisingly, his own poems about the distant past, the ******, and the philosophical owe much to the influence of the great Alexandrian poet. Beautifully illustrated with line drawings by Donald Sammut, this is a collection rich in sensuality, nostalgia, and music.
