In this volume Proust's previous actions end with fitting resolution, with the captive of the last volume becoming the fugitive, and leaving him. The tone for a good part of this volume follows on from the previous one, with his jealousy and suspicion eventually bringing to surface some unexpected revelations, which are followed in the latter part of the book by other surprises, from elsewhere. Proust more or less comes to terms with his grief eventually, but fails to return to the quality of happinesses of the first couple of volumes, with the marriages of two of his once intimate friends provoking almost an attitude of indifference from him, showing perhaps his understandable weariness. Hopefully things will turn out better for him in the final volume.
