Quasi un preludio "musicale" all'intera "Recherche", "Dalla parte di Swann" (1913) introduce i temi cruciali dell'intera opera: il senso del tempo, la memoria, il sogno, l'abitudine, il desiderio. E poi ancora la gelosia, il rapporto tra arte e realtà, l'interagire di rituali ed emozioni. Il lettore fa conoscenza in queste pagine con i personaggi destinati ad accompagnarlo lungo i sette libri - Odette, Bloch, Françoise, Charlus... -, mentre la storia d'amore di Swann diventa quasi "figura" del contrastato rapporto che legherà poi il narratore a Gilberte e Albertine.

Proust so titillates my own desire for expression that I can hardly set out the sentence…My great adventure is really Proust. Well—what remains to be written after that? I’m only in the first volume, and there are, I suppose, faults to be found, but I am in a state of amazement; as if a miracle wer Leggi tutto

Beautiful writing, lyrical, complex, maybe even occasionally convoluted. First the famous passage about madeleines: “And suddenly the memory rev Leggi tutto

Memory is a slippery little sucker . It constitutes an elusive, transient cache of data, the reliability of which decreases in reverse proportion to the length of time it has been stored.
