Considered by many to be the most important French novelist of the twentieth century, Marcel Proust has attracted an extraordinary amount of scholarly and popular attention. His wide following stems from his preoccupation with the timeless themes of art, society, and love, subjects that ensure an enduring interest in his work. These themes are conveyed through rich, sinuous language that initiates the reader into Proust's complex world view.
Barbara Bucknall concentrates on Proust's masterpiece, A la recherche du temps perdu, and through a lively discussion shows us a method of reading. A must for any student or other reader of Proust, this work takes into account all the latest critical tendencies, including the Freudian and psychoanalytic interpretations of the novelist. Professor Bucknall also deals forthrightly with the themes of homosexuality, lesbianism, sadomasochism, and related topics with taste, refinement, objectivity, and even humor.
Marcel Proust Revisited provides a valuable addition to any course on French literature of fin-de-siecle France.
