The Revolt of Aphrodite consists of two novels by British writer Lawrence Durrell, published in 1968 and 1970. They deviate significantly from his earlier style and because they approach more openly political and ideological problems. ------- The novels are densely allusive and reflect the political tensions of the May 1968 general strike in Paris. They also address the same theme of multiplicity and contingency Durrell developed in The Alexandria Quartet, often in a way that shows Durrell's interest in Nietzsche: Lawrence George Durrell (1912 - 1990) was an expatriate British novelist, poet, dramatist, and travel writer. He was the oldest brother of naturalist Gerald Durrell. -------- Born in India to British colonial parents, he was sent to England at the age of eleven for his education. He did not like formal education but started writing poetry at age 15. His first book was published in 1935, when he was 23. In March 1935 he and his wife, and his mother and younger siblings, moved to the island of Corfu. Durrell spent many years afterward living around the world. ------ Tunc. New York: E. P.
