Swann's Way

Proust's classic novel Swann's Way is the first entry in his acclaimed series: Remembrance of Things Past, also known as In Search of Lost Time. Originally written and published in 1909, this premier entry in Proust's series contains some of the finest prose fiction Proust ever authored. Although lengthy, no sacrifice is made with the signature style Proust had cultivated by the time he commenced Swann's Way - recollections are written relentlessly, of places, names, items and other such paraphernalia of life. The narrator gradually builds up a plot surrounding his own life and activities. The titular character, Charles Swann is an associate of the narrator's family who receives particular interest in the story. The first scene recounts a dinner in which Swann was in attendance, noting his characteristics. By stages, a compelling story unfolds with Swann's affections for the former courtesan Odette de Crecy explored. As compared with other, later, entries in the Remembrance series, Swann's Way is a much more standalone novel. It is the part most often published as a distinct work, and recommended as an introduction both to Proust's series and the rest of his writings. Artistically well-informed, Proust imbues this book with classical musical references that serve to enrich both the tone and plot. This acclaimed translation from the original French is by C.K. Scott Moncrieff. Since first appearing in the 1920s, it has served as a popular and abiding rendition responsible for elevating Proust's fame and reputation among English speaking audiences.
