Summary

La primera parte de una obra maestra sobre al amor, las relaciones humanas y el devenir del tiempo.

En 1913 vio la luz esta primera entrega de uno de los ciclos novelísticos más admirables de la historia de la literatura: En busca del tiempo perdido, un camino iniciático y un análisis, de hondo calado filosófico, de la compleja relación del tiempo con la memoria, ese instrumento —formado por recuerdos, ensaciones, incluso sabores—para reapropiarse del pasado y de ese modo devolver su integridad al presente.

El libro se divide en tres partes, todas ellas variaciones sobre el tema del tiempo que inexorablemente queda atrás: «Combray», el pueblo de la infancia del protagonista, que lo rememora antes de dormir; «Un amor de Swann», o el despilfarro del tiempo en un amor, el de Odette y Swann, agostado por los celos; «Nombres de país: el Nombre», que gira en torno a los recuerdos de la adolescencia.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The first volume of Proust’s seven-part novel “In Search of Lost Time,” also known as “A Remembrance of Things Past,” “Swann’s Way” is the auspicious beginning of Proust’s most prominent work. A mature, unnamed man recalls the details of his commonplace, idyllic existence as a sensitive and intuitive boy in Combray. For a time, the story is narrated through his younger mind in beautiful, almost dream-like prose. In a subsequent section of the volume, the narrator tells of the excruciating romance of his country neighbor, Monsieur Swann. The narrator reverts to his childhood, where he begins a similarly hopeless infatuation with Swann’s little daughter, Gilberte. Through a fragmented narrative, Proust examines the thematic importance of memory, time, and art that connect and interweave the protagonist’s memories. Considered to be one of the twentieth century’s most significant novels, Proust ultimately portrays the volatility of human life in this sweeping contemplation of reality and time.
