              Proust for Beginners (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Bachmann, Stephen; Illustrated by Howell, Van; Foreword by Augenbraum, Harold

              PROUST FOR BEGINNERS is a compelling biography of French novelist Marcel Proust and a vivid portrait of his times. It also serves as a concise guide and critical review of In Search of Lost Time (A la recherche du temps perdu, 7 volumes, 1913-1927), one of the most difficult-yet ...widely taught-works of French literature. With extensive passages from 'In Search of Lost Time' and other essential works, PROUST FOR BEGINNERS highlights the defining themes and unique literary style of a modern master whom many have heard about but few fully fathom. It portrays Proust and the milieu in which he wrote in vivid detail, bringing to life the Proustian moments at the heart of his greatest work-and our own everyday experience. Proust's masterpiece begins in a series of rooms in which he unlocks themes, styles, references, and foreshadows, writes Harold Augenbraum in the foreword. PROUST FOR BEGINNERS will provide the key.
