Remembering Proust and His Literary Masterpiece

Just to keep you 100% informed on all things Proust this month, Highbrow Magazine has a Proust article.  Don't you just love that name?  Wonder if there has ever been a Lowbrow Magazine.  Well, how about People and all the celebrity dreck that graces the supermarket checkout line. Bizarre magazines and faux news only a lowbrow could read or love or even write.  You will never see Proust on the cover of any of those scandal sheets.

Take a gander at this:  Remembering Proust and His Literary Masterpiece

Here is a photo of my Proust bookshelf.  Volume II of the novel is on my nightstand where I have been stalled with Albertine for an awfully long time, alas.

I am neither a scholar nor a literary writer,  but I do have a thing for Proust.

Hi JK, I thought of you when I just read Peter Bradshaw at The Guardian in London who has written this assessment of all the cinematic attempts and seems to conclude that Proust must be read before viewing

Wow! That is a great article. Had no idea so many had tried and failed to film Proust. We did watch "Time Regained" many years ago at a little theater in Harvard Square. So interesting that Catherine Deneuve played Odette. Somehow, nothing filmed can match the shock of seeing the cast of characters grown old. It imitates life so thoroughly.
