Promotional Information

This study of Proust's famous novel A la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past) focuses on Venice.


"...provides remarkably original insights into Venice's prime role, and through Venice the role of art, in the reconstitution of reality in Proust's great novel A la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past)... Collier exhibits a profound knowledge of Proust's work and also of Venice, its art and its soul, as Proust experienced them. Very well chosen illustrations and useful notes are included." C.G. Hill, Brooklyn College, CUNY, in Choice
