"He has the candor...of a man at his life's last confession--he is a dying man confessing to himself. His candor and his kindliness prevent our being greatly shocked by the people he presents to us. He does not scold, he does not satirize....This does not mean that Marcel Proust is always the philosopher in his writing about the men and women of this world. Fortunately he is not. He is a gossip who has been made over into a philosopher..."
Padraic Colum, Saturday Review, 11/02/1929Review:
"In spite of his independent manner, Proust has managed to inspire his novel with the prudent technical virtues of suspense and unity. These signs of formal interest are what make 'Remembrance of Things Past' a novel, rather than mere rambling reminiscence....It is held together by a method analogous to that which unifies actual human experience, repetition of events, physical and mental. "
