Here is an illuminating overture to the defining work of French modernism and one of the major classics of the twentieth century. Prousts epic examination of the subtleties of human existence in the modern world is a gargantuan composition, spanning seven volumes. Neville Jason, the internationally-acclaimed reader of the extended abridgement of Remembrance of Things Past, produces this useful introduction, bringing clarity to the intricacy of Prousts meditations, and enabling the listener to appreciate their perceptiveness afresh. Jason highlights the key passages, introducing them succinctly, so that listeners gain an understanding of the main characters, themes and plot, as well as an appreciation for the depth and beauty of this great work.
One of the great works of Western literature, now in the new definitive French Pleiade edition translated by C.K. Scott Moncrieff and Terence Kilmartin. Volume one includes SWANN'S WAY and WITHIN A BUDDING GROVE.
