Proust in Perspective by Armine Kotin Mortimer
Book DescriptionMarcel Proust speaks to us today as a contemporary and a classic. His great novel resonates across languages and time, summing up the past, interpreting the present, and envisioning the future. For "Proust in Perspective", scholars from France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Canada, and the United States have drawn on rich new editions of Proust's novel and correspondence to bring us fresh views of his work. In 19 original essays, a foreword by Jean-Yves Tadi, and an introduction by editors Armine Kotin Mortimer and Katherine Kolb, this volume guides readers through the dense weave of Proust's fiction and correspondence. The essays take us into the realm of Proustian language-as quotation, metaphor, and memory-and into art history and musical ideology, connecting the art of words with the words of art. They explore the interface of history and fiction, the mysteries of the text's evolution, and the dilemmas of its publication. They present the revelations of genetic criticism and the surprises of gender analysis. Taken together, these essays conjure a multifaceted profile of Proust--his work, life, character, and influence--and of new directions in Proust scholarship today. With compelling rigor and infectious enthusiasm, "Proust in Perspective" conveys the magnitude of Proust's continuing appeal.
