We are a non-profit educational organization promoting the works and study of Lawrence Durrell, a writer most active in the second half of the 20th century. To support an understanding of Durrell’s place in modernist and postmodernist traditions as well as in a canon of world literature, we sponsor meetings worldwide, publish a newsletter and journal, and provide a number of other resources. Learn more about who we are, what we do, and how to get involved on the Society page.

The Herald – Volume 40 [NS-1]; Summer 2019

The International Lawrence Durrell Society wants to announce the newest incarnation of The Herald, now ascending into the upper echelons with this volume numbered 40!  We are also appending the ‘NS’ indicator to represent it as a New Series, after the illustrious and magnificently produced series guided along by Pamela Francis.  The ILDS has taken this opportunity to move The Herald to an email version in order to expedite its creation and reduce costs and materials associated with the mailed version.  If, however, you wish to receive The Herald in a tenderly folded paper edition, please email the editors at newsletter.ilds@gmail.com and we’ll make sure to put you on the list to receive a mailed version (assuming you are a member of the ILDS — if you’re not a member, visit here here to join.)

Without delay, you can read the newest volume by clicking on The Herald.

The Herald NS* [New Series]

Looking along the bookshelf where I keep my collection of Lawrence Durrell books, I remind myself what a fantastic job the International Lawrence Durrell Society (ILDS) has done in maintaining the reputation and visibility of Durrell. From the outset, the ILDS has promoted Durrell not only via its biennial academic conference, but also by means of its regularly published scholarly journal, Deus Loci, and its newsletter – The Herald.
