      la recherche du temps perdu was divided into seven volumes ten in my edition by Proust s publishers but it also falls naturally into a long series of chapters, some of which overlap the volumes In these chapters, the narrator focuses on a specific theme, a particular place, or an individual character A few of these characters provide a strong link between all the chapters and seem to be essential elements in the overall plan of the work Of this small group of characters, Charles Swann and the n [...]

      I enjoyed the second half of Le C t de Guermantes a bit than the first, for some reason It seemed to pull together the characters and the plot actually moved forward quite a lot The scene at the beginning, in which the illness of the narrator s grandmother proves to be than just a case of nerves, is marvelously used by Proust to show that serious events bring out the best and the worst in people The duchesse de Guermantes, now that the narrator is not so besotted with her, suddenly takes an in [...]

      Marcels grandmother is dying At the end of the last novel she had a stroke while her and Marcel were out walking and she s now bedridden This is the first death of the story, and as she lies in bed, slowly deteriorating, her body changing and turning into something unrecognizable, friends and acquaintances stop by to pay their respects Her deathbed becomes a sort of salon on its own, continuing the theme of this particular segment of In Search of Lost Time, while also highlighting yet another on [...]

      This marks or less the halfway point I m wondering why why why I was so determined to read _ La recherche du temps perdu_ in French I m finding it mostly tedious and solipsistic, but with moments of brilliance, beauty and wonder Onward And no shame in admitting I m skimming the stuff I have little patience for.

      Le c t de Guermantes by Marcel ProustThere isn t much I could say about such a masterpiece Marcel Proust is not only the best writer that I had the chance to read, but he is an author I could read quite early, at 17.Now I read his work again If I was overwhelmed by the complexity of his work when I was young, now I discover other aspects his humor for instance.There is the scene where francoise is fighting with the chicken sale bete The poor animal will end up in a dish, but Francoise is upset t [...]

      In my opinion, this is the most difficult volume in La Recherche so far the narrator shows that he doesn t believe in friendship, lets us peek through his latent class biases while ridiculing the same , and describes a very long and boring party at the Duchess of Guermantes It took me quite a while to get through it.Still there are some gems, A change in the weather sometimes suffices to create the world and ourselves anew my rough translation Proust s writing continues to be full of simple trut [...]

      Over and over again I kept feeling like he was detailing secrets social rules that either shouldn t be spoken, or that were so restrictive I felt I couldn t breathe.I m amazed he can focus in so tightly while the overall story is so grand.
