Alexandria is a city which has haunted and inspired its visitors for over 2,000 years. Here, two of its best-known celebrants provide a view of Alexandria's present through the window of its past. Written during World War I, and later revised, this is Forster's tribute to Alexandria--a combined history of the city and a practicaql guide for the visitor. This annotated edition contains not only the first translation of Constantine Cavafy's famous poem "The God Abandons Antony" but also a specially commissioned introduction by Lawrence Durrell, who recounts his recent return to the city that served as a backdrop for the Alexandria Quartet.

Edward Morgan Forster was one of the most respected literary figures of his age. Among the novels he wrote were A Room with a View, A Passage to India and Maurice. Alexandria was inspired by the time he spent in Egypt during the First World War and was first published in 1922, followed, in 1923, by Pharos and Pharillon. Professor Miriam Allott is one of the country's most respected authorities in the field of English Literature, including, of course, the work of E.M. Forster. She is Professor of English at Liverpool University, the city in which she lives.
