The line between art and reality


Over 30 years ago, Lawrence Durrell wrote of Santorini in his book The Greek Islands,


It is hardly a matter of surprise that few, if any, good descriptions of Santorini have been written: the reality is so astonishing that prose and poetry, however winged, will forever be forced to limp behind”.


Today this still applies, and will I believe, be so for ever more.


For on this jewel of the Aegean, the line between art and reality is severely blurred.
