Overview

Ecrit entre 1908 (ou 1909) et 1922, À la recherche du temps perdu fut publié pour la première fois publié entre 1913 et 1927, les trois derniers tomes paraissant après la mort de l'auteur.
Ce roman est souvent qualifié de Premier roman moderne , dans la mesure ou il remet en question tous les usages en matière de narration. Les phrases y sont parfois très longue, l'action presque inexistante. Pourtant, le rythme indolent qui berce le lecteur finit par exercer sur lui une attirance hypnotique.
Ce livre, est bien plus qu'une réflexion sur le temps, c'est une tentative pour le tordre et en percer les mystères par la torture.
À notre époque, si pressée de se cantonner à l'utile et à l'efficace, cette lecture peut être considérée comme un acte thérapeutique.

Du côté de chez Swann est le premier volume de À la recherche du temps perdu. Il est composé de trois parties, dont les titres sont :
- Combray
- Un amour de Swann
- Nom de pays : le nom.
Dans Combray, le narrateur raconte son enfance à Combray, sa relation à sa mère dont il réclame la présence le soir avant de se coucher. Il évoque ses premières lectures, notamment François le Champi de George Sand.
Un Amour de Swann est un roman dans l'œuvre. On peut le lire indépendamment des autres parties. Il s'agit d'un retour en arrière dans la vie de Charles Swann.
Nom de pays : le nom évoque les rêveries du narrateur, ses envies de voyage, lui à qui la maladie interdit jusqu'à une sortie au théâtre. C'est donc à travers les horaires des trains qu'il voit Balbec et surtout Venise.

Meet the Author

Marcel Proust
Marcel Proust
Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust was a French novelist, essayist and critic, best known as the author of À la recherche du temps perdu (in English, In Search of Lost Time; earlier translated as Remembrance of Things Past), a monumental work of 20th-century fiction published in seven parts from 1913 to 1927.

Biography

Born to a wealthy family, iconic French writer Marcel Proust (1871-1922) studied law and literature. His social connections allowed him to become an observant habitué of the most exclusive drawing rooms of the nobility, and he wrote social pieces for Parisian journals. He published essays and stories, including the story collection Pleasures and Days (1896). He had suffered from asthma since childhood, and c. 1897 he began to disengage from social life as his health declined.

Half-Jewish himself, he became a major supporter of Alfred Dreyfus in the affair that made French anti-Semitism into a national issue. Deeply affected by his mother's death in 1905, he withdrew further from society. An incident of involuntary revival of childhood memory in 1909 led him to retire almost totally into an eccentric seclusion in his cork-lined bedroom to write À la recherche du temps perdu (in English: In Search of Lost Time or Remembrance of Things Past ). Published between 1913 and 1927, the vast seven-part novel is at once a kind of autobiography, a vast social panorama of France in the years just before and during World War I, and an immense meditation on love and jealousy and on art and its relation to reality. One of the supreme achievements in fiction of all time, it brought him worldwide fame and affected the entire climate of the 20th-century novel. Biography from Encyclopedia Britannica
