by Marcel Proust
translated by Terence Kilmartin, C. K. Scott-Moncrieff and D. J. Enright
In the opening volume of Proust's great novel, the narrator travels backwards in time in order to tell the story of a love affair that had taken place before his own birth. Swann's jealous love for Odette provides a prophetic model of the narrator's own relationships. All Proust's great themes--time and memory, love and loss, art and the artistic vocation--are here in kernel form.
