Review:

"This book on plants associated with the writings of Marcel Proust is different...it is accessible and amusing at times, how Proust would have it." (Prof. Stephen D. Hopper Royal Botanic Gardens) "This is a most impressive work. To the best of my knowledge, no scholar has ever attempted such a detailed analysis of Proust's botanical imagery." (Prof. Ernest M. Wiltshire Co-Author: Freedmen of Barbados)"

Book Description The Edwin Mellen Press Ltd, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the first book to study how plants were a key component of a major French author s inspiration and physical decline. The most complete scholarly work to study representations of plants in the writings of Marcel Proust. Proust took simple inspiration from the gardens he observed in his daily life. This book takes a different approach because it is based on the author s fiction and correspondence. It also explains how Proust was a chronic asthmatic, whose passion for plants actually caused him to suffer. Proust used plants as a creative tool, yet they also led to his physical decline.
