Those lines will be echoic for any readers of /Prospero's Cell/.  Cf. 
"It is a sophism to imagine that there is any strict dividing line 
between the waking world and the world of dreams" &c. &c. &c. 

Again, one has the feeling looking back on such lines in /Justine /from 
the next books in the /Quartet /that Durrell is revisiting his former 
writings. . . .
