KIRKUS REVIEW

An exhaustive analytical critique of A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu, giving a sort of play by play and chapter by chapter resume and interpretation of the great French novel. It is a serious and highly intelligent work, stressing Proust's intimate alliance with Bergson, his belief in the use of intuition as a necessary addition to intelligence, his interesting concept of time, and above all his brilliant analysis of man's multiple and ever fluent personality. For any reader who has not grasped Proust's novel or who has read it only in superficial terms, the book will deepen his understanding. It is primarily however for a special audience of students, fanciers.
