Description

A critical reading in English translation of substantial portions of Marcel Proust's great work of fiction and philosophy, A la Recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time). Class discussion and exercises will concentrate on major sections, mainly from Swann's Way, The Guermantes Way, Sodom and Gomorrah, and Time Regained. Some attention will be given to the tradition of critical commentary in English on Proust's work and its place as a document of European modernism. Two class meetings per week. Professor Cameron.
