Lawrence Durrell
Über meine Bibliothek
Durrell was an avid reader, and often incorporated elements from works of history and mythology into his own fiction and poetry. His library includes many works by his contemporaries, including books inscribed to him by T.S. Eliot, Henry Miller, and others. After his death, his library was split between two institutions: Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC), and l'Universite Paris X Nanterre.

We are currently cataloging books from the portion of Durrell's library housed in the Special Collections Research Center at SIUC.
