Overview

Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VII. He is a key figure in poststructuralism and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. In Proust and Signs, Deleuze explores the work of art. He approaches the narrative of Proust's masterpiece, A La Recherche du Temps Purdu, as the apprenticeship of a man of letters. his concern is to come to a deeper understanding of the book and of art itself by tracing the network of signs laid in the text. Admired at its original appearance as an imaginative and innovative study of Proust and as one of Deleuze's most accessibleworks, this book stands as the writer's most sustained attempt to understand and explain the work of art.
