Marcel Proust

Edited by: Dieter Stolz
Andreas Isenschmid’s essay tells the story of Proust’s life as a sequence of six identity-shaping periods: his childhood in Auteuil; discovery of his homosexuality and of writing in secondary school; the adulation and downfall of the Countess Greffulhe; his pilgrimage in search of John Ruskin; the emergence in a notebook of the novel “Remembrance of Things Past” and the feverish changes that Proust ceaselessly made to his masterpiece.
