Overview

In Search of Proust, with linking commentary, is a selection of excerpts from the English translation of 'A la Recherche du Temps Perdu' / 'In Search of Lost Time' by Marcel Proust (1871 - 1922), organised under the following theme headings:


1) Four Incidents;

2) The Living Scene;

3) Characters and Figures;

4) Behaviour - of others and Marcel's own:

5) Memory and the Passing of Time;

6) The Arts and their Creators.


For those who may have given up on reading this novel, or hesitated to embark at all, discouraged by its length, this selection introduces readers to the range, insight and vitality of Proust's work.

'In Search of Lost Time' follows the narrator's recollections of his past during the late 19th to early 20th century aristocratic France, while reflecting on lost time and questioning the meaning of life.

Proust continued to work on refining this novel over a period of some fifteen years until his final illness in the autumn of 1922 forced him to stop. His literary masterpiece, which is both captivating and extraordinary, is undoubtedly one of the most respected novels of the twentieth-century.
