SWANN'S WAY (Modern Classics Series) by Marcel Proust Summary

This carefully crafted ebook: "SWANN'S WAY (Modern Classics Series)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. When the night falls, the unnamed narrator finds it difficult to reign in his galloping thoughts. Night for him means profound loneliness and also the only time when his thoughts and memories come back unbidden, often waking him up in the middle of the night. His thoughts involuntarily go back his past, his country home in Combray and the people who once populated that time... "For a long time I used to go to bed early. Sometimes, when I had put out my candle, my eyes would close so quickly that I had not even time to say "I'm going to sleep." And half an hour later the thought that it was time to go to sleep would awaken me; I would try to put away the book which, I imagined, was still in my hands, and to blow out the light; I had been thinking all the time..." Marcel Proust (1871–1922) was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental novel À la Recherche du Temps Perdu (1913-1927). He is considered by English critics and writers to be one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. Charles Kenneth Scott Moncrieff (1889–1930) was a Scottish writer, most famous for his English translation of most of Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu, which he published under the Shakespearean title Remembrance of Things Past.

Swann's Way (International Student Edition) (Norton Critical Editions) by Marcel Proust Summary

In its centennial year, Marcel Proust’s masterpiece of literary imagination is available in a Norton Critical Edition. Marcel Proust’s seven-volume masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time (A la recherche du temps perdu), has inspired many superlatives, among them “the greatest novel ever written” and “the greatest novel of the first half of the twentieth century.” Swann’s Way, the first volume of the Recherche and the most widely read and taught of all the volumes, is the ideal introduction to Proust’s inventive genius. This Norton Critical Edition is based on C. K. Scott Moncrieff’s translation, which introduced the English-speaking world to Proust and was published during the author’s lifetime. It is accompanied by Susanna Lee’s introduction, note on the text, and explanatory annotations. Marcel Proust was forty-two years old when Swann’s Way was published, but its foundational ideas and general shape had been evolving for decades. “Contexts” includes a 1912 reader’s report of the manuscript that exemplifies publishers’ complicated reactions to Proust’s new form of writing. Also included are three important post-publication reviews of the novel, by Elie-Joseph Bois, Lucien Daudet, and Paul Souday, as well as André Arnyvelde’s 1913 interview with Proust. The fourteen critical essays and interpretations of Swann’s Way in this volume speak to the novel’s many facets—from the musical to the artistic to its representations of Judaism and homosexuality. Contributors include Gérard Genette, whose “Metonymy in Proust” appears here in English translation for the first time, along with Gilles Deleuze, Roger Shattuck, Claudia Brodsky, Julia Kristeva, Margaret E. Gray, and Alain de Botton, among others. The edition also includes a Chronology of Proust’s Life and Work, a Selected Chronology of French Literature from 1870 to 1929, and a Selected Bibliography.

Swann's Way (Illustrated) by Marcel Proust Summary

Sodom and Gomorrah opens a new phase of In Search of Lost Time. While watching the pollination of the Duchess de Guer-mantes’s orchid, the narrator secretly observes a sexual encounter between two men. “Flower and plant have no conscious will,” Samuel Beckett wrote of Proust’s representation of sexuality. “They are shameless, exposing their genitals. And so in a sense are Proust’s men and women . . . shameless. There is no question of right and wrong.” For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the late Terence Kilmartin’s acclaimed reworking of C. K. Scott Moncrieff’s translation to take into account the new definitive French editions of Á la recherché du temps perdu (the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade in 1989).

Proust: Swann's Way by Sheila Stern Summary

Swann's Way, published in 1913, is the first part of Proust's seven-part novel A la Recherche du temps perdu. The author's expansion, revision and correction of the work were cut short by his death in 1922, and sixty-six years later editors are still producing variants of the last three volumes based on working notebooks. The novel's structure was compared by its author to that of a cathedral, and its status is that of one of the greatest literary landmarks of the twentieth century. Sheila Stern's study begins with a summary of the whole novel and goes on to give an account of the activity of reading as part of its subject-matter. Two chapters are devoted to Swann's Way itself, with close attention to the opening pages, and to such topics as memory, time, imagery and names. The book's reception in various Western literatures is discussed, and there is a guide to further reading.

Un amour de Swann by Marcel Proust Summary

Nous nous retrouvons une quinzaine d'années en arrière (le narrateur n'est pas encore né), quai Conti à Paris, dans le salon des Verdurin, riches bourgeois mécènes qui aiment réunir chez eux des artistes. Une condition pour être admis dans leur salon, admirer sans réserve le jeune musicien à la mode ainsi que le docteur Cottard, grand ami du couple Verdurin. Parmi les habitués, Odette de Crécy, particulièrement appréciée par Mme Verdurin et qui intervient pour introduire son ami Swann. Très fortuné et grand séducteur, Charles Swann fréquente le milieu aristocratique peuplé de princes, d'ambassadeurs et d'académiciens. S'il aime à séduire les femmes du beau monde, il ne dédaigne pas pour autant la compagnie des midinettes. Très policé, il peut cependant faire preuve de muflerie à l'égard de ses maîtresses. Il est attiré par Odette de Crécy qu'il trouve très belle, tout en relevant chez elle certaines imperfections physiques; et puis, Odette n'est pas très cultivée. Il lui arrive de se lasser d'elle, jamais pour longtemps car il regrette sa présence dès qu'elle s'éloigne. Odette, elle, cherche le contact de Swann et multiplie leurs rencontres. Lors de sa première visite chez les Verdurin, Swann fait une excellente impression à ses hôtes. Il fait la connaissance des principaux habitués: le docteur Cottard, médecin célèbre, imbu de sa personne et tout à la dévotion de Mme Verdurin; le peintre Biche (qu'on retrouvera plus tard, devenu célèbre sous le nom d'Elstir); Saniette, ancien archiviste, fortuné, issu d'une famille noble (il est le beau-frère du comte de Forcheville). Saniette est un homme foncièrement bon et simple, mais souvent maladroit et devenu le souffre-douleur du ménage Verdurin. Il y a aussi Brichot, professeur à la Sorbonne, bavard et pédant, féru de plaisanteries et de jeu de mots pas toujours du meilleur goût.Mme Verdurin trône sans partage sur ce petit clan, comme une reine surveillant sa cour, les habitués du salon ne l'appellent-ils pas la Patronne . Elle va favoriser le rapprochement entre Swann et Odette. Lors d'une soirée, le jeune pianiste joue une petite phrase musicale d'une sonate que Swann a déjà entendue et qu'il a beaucoup aimée. Il apprend que le compositeur est un certain Vinteuil, mais à aucun moment il ne fait le rapprochement entre l'obscur petit professeur de piano de Montjouvain et l'homme capable d'écrire une telle oeuvre. Swann finit par trouver chez Odette une beauté due à sa ressemblance avec Zéphora, un personnage d'un tableau de Boticelli.

Sur la lecture by Marcel Proust Summary

Le texte a paru en préface à la traduction par Proust du livre de John Ruskin : Sésame et les lys. Il n'y a peut-être pas de jours de notre enfance que nous ayons si pleinement vécus que ceux que nous avons cru laisser sans les vivre, ceux que nous avons passés avec un livre préféré. Tout ce qui, semblait-il, les remplissait pour les autres, et que nous écartions comme un obstacle vulgaire à un plaisir divin : le jeu pour lequel un ami venait nous chercher au passage le plus intéressant, l'abeille ou le rayon de soleil gênants qui nous forçaient à lever les yeux de la page ou à changer de place, les provisions de goûter qu'on nous avait fait emporter et que nous laissions à côté de nous sur le banc, sans y toucher, tandis que, au-dessus de notre tête, le soleil diminuait de force dans le ciel bleu, le dîner pour lequel il avait fallu rentrer et où nous ne pensions qu'à monter finir, tout de suite après, le chapitre interrompu, tout cela, dont la lecture aurait dû nous empêcher de percevoir autre chose que l'importunité, elle en gravait au contraire en nous un souvenir tellement doux (tellement plus précieux à notre jugement actuel que ce que nous lisions alors avec tant d'amour,) que, s'il nous arrive encore aujourd'hui de feuilleter ces livres d'autrefois, ce n'est plus que comme les seuls calendriers que nous ayons gardés des jours enfuis, et avec l'espoir de voir reflétés sur leurs pages les demeures et les étangs qui n'existent plus.
