Synopsis:

"An ambitious study, the fruit of sustained work over many years. Professor Carter's book deploys a stunning knowledge of Proust and places Carter among the first line of Proust scholars in the country."
—Roger Shattuck,Boston University

The Proustian Quest is the first full-length study that explores the influence of social change on Proust's vision. In Remembrance of Things Past, Proust describes how the machines of transportation and communication transformed fashion, social mores, time-space perception, and the understanding of the laws of nature. Concentrating on the motif of speed, Carter establishes the centrality of the modern world to the novel's main themes and produces a far- reaching synthesis that demonstrates the work's profound structural unity.

About the Author:

William C. Carter is Professor of French at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, a member of the editorial board of the Bulletin Marcel Proust and a permanent correspondent of the Proust Research Center at the Sorbonne.



Jeffrey Lange is Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law.
