Thanks for forwarding Allison Kreuiter's article. 


I don't think there is any way of expressing my appreciation to the author
excepting through this response the ILDS. I found the article wonderfully
perceptive and sensitive to the aesthetics of Durrell's writing and
particularly to his creation of landscape. I have not read Foucault and am
not therefore directly familiar with deconstructionism, but in the context
of Durrell's familiar creation of Alexandria, I was able to relate to
Foucault's "counter-sites":


"Places of this kind are outside of all places even though it may be
possible to indicate their location in reality."


The comparison with specific paintings is also notable, and illustrates the
aesthetics of Durrell's writing very well.
