Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both a psychological self-portrait and a profound meditation upon the artistic process, Marcel Proust's monumental seven-part masterpiece Remembrance of Things Past forever changed the course of twentieth-century literature. Swann's Way, the first volume, introduces the novel's major themes and the narrator, a sensitive young man drawn to fashionable society and inclined to introspection. It then shifts to Charles Swann himself, a man-about-town in the glamorous milieu of belle-epoque paris and a victim of an agonizing romance. This masterly evocation of French society, bitingly satiric and often comic, first appeared in 1913, and its rendering of the true meaning of the past, a transcendental reality independent of time, has made this novel one of the immortal landmarks of world literature.

Synopsis:

The first volume of the seven-part masterpiece In Search of Lost Time, Swann's Way introduces the reader to Charles Swann, a wealthy connoisseur in 19th-century Paris and a victim of an agonizing romance.
