1 - 2 weeks availability


Shows through detailed analysis of Proust's philosophical and literary as well as his conscious oesthetic and how the various motifs in his works intertwine. Although Proust's work does not present the linguistic difficulties of Joyce, his narrative style is highly complex, and the reader must be alert to the enunciation and development of elusive themes. In this guide Milton Hindus shows how these motifs twine and intertwine. He discusses Proust's philosophical and literary influences as well as his conscious aesthetic. Particularly valuable are the sections on Proust's earlier works which, Hindus claims, are in so many respects studies of Proust's greatest achievement.
