In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu #1-7) ( Reviews)

  • Manny

    When you read Proust, and learn to appreciate his extraordinary, dreamy, hypnotic, truly inimitable style this review is a mere shadow on the wall of a Platonic cave , which succeeds in making the syntax of language, usually as invisible as air, into a tangible element, so that, like literary yogis, we may feel, for the first time, how enjoyable the simple activity of reading, like breathing, can be and discover the delights of sentences which took the author days to construct and us an hour t

    I took today off work because I need to put everything I own into boxes so I can move tomorrow, but obviously I can t begin doing that until I get some of these obsessive thoughts about Proust out of my system I mean, can I Nope I can t After all, this house is where I read Proust wait, I read Swann s Way before I moved here, which is pretty nuts to think about and so how can I move without reviewing the whole thing I do feel pretty traumatized after finishing this book Sort of shells

    Why did Proust have to write a 4000 page novel, especially when there is not any discernable, coherent plot Was it really necessary to have those extended society scenes, some of which lasted for 150 pages or so Couldn t the whole thing have been tightened up a little and cut down to 1000 pages or so I asked myself these questions at various points over the nine months it took me to journey through Proust s masterpiece It was not until the final two volumes and particularly the latter half

    We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world The lives that you admire, the attitudes that seem noble to you, have not been shaped by a paterfamilias or a schoolmaster, they have sprung from very different beginnings, having been influenced by evil or commonplace that prevailed round them They re

    Celebrity Death Match Special In Search of Lost Time versus Harry PotterThe francophone world was stunned by today s release of papers, sealed by Proust for 100 years after publication of the initial volume of his famous series, which finally reveal his original draft manuscripts In the rest of this review, you can find out what Proust s books looked like before his well meaning but unworldly editor decided that French literateurs would prefer something slightly different.

    Questa non una recensione, ce ne sono in giro gi abbastanza Anzi, ci che stato scritto a proposito della Recherce supera di gran lunga il numero di pagine della Recherche stessa Inoltre, se continuano ad esserci lettori che macinano con gioia le 2000 e pi pagine del romanzo, un motivo ci sar bello Quindi mi limito a lasciare qui qualche appunto, pensieri che mi vengono in mente durante la lettura DALLA PARTE DI SWANNHo sempre associato questa prima parte alla primavera e anche ogg

    I read the whole damn thing, for which I feel like demanding a medal A famous quote about this work goes, I may be thicker skinned than most, but I just can t understand why anyone should take thirty pages to describe how he tosses about in bed because he can t get to sleep I clutched my head I heartily agree Nor do I like dinner parties that take longer to read about than they took to occur The main problem with Proust and his admirers is that they are convinced that the French aristocr

    Sodom Gomorrah 4 starThis volume focusses on gay lesbian sex It s sometimes on the side of love is love and sometimes on the side of it s not to be tolerated It s almost as if this volume is Proust battling with his conscience, guilt and or the social attitudes of the time in reference with homosexuality This could be nothing than Proust making peace with his own thoughts, guilt, shame, lusts, desires, etc It is a terrible thing to have to deny oneself in one s own socie

    There are some writers that have made such a unique contribution to literature and to art that they are considered among the best, if not the best, and not just in their own country, but in the world Such a writer was Marcel Proust He has been called the greatest novelist of the 20th century, and the novel, A la Recherche du Temps Perdu, compared to Michelangelo s Sistine Chapel ceiling But Michelangelo was known as The Divine , while Proust was called a hypochondriac, a dilettante, a homose
