Tetralogy of the Times is a powerful document capturing the mood of the Cypriot people, in Chekhovian sensibility fronm the years of their British colonial status to their present predicament. As the author points out"the shocking events of l955-1959 in Cyprus moved me as they moved other writers too, -to attempt to express the events and the climate of that era. The first section of the Tetralogy "Times immovable" portays the period before l955 when Cyprus was a British colony. it is followed by "times of difficulty" which canvasses the struggle of the Cypriot people for independence. The first years of independent Cyprus are captured in the third collection of stories called "Times of Affluence".It brings the story to l974 when the coup d'etat against Archbishop Makarios took place, an incident which gave Turkey the opportunity and excuse to invade Cyprus. The Turkish invasion and its consequences -political, social and moral- are dealt with in the fourth section "Times of Suffering" . 269p. . 1st.US Edition. New/New.
