Abstract:

"This book is an account of the life and times of Marcel Proust, one of the greatest literary voices of the twentieth century. Based on a host of recently available letters, memoirs, and manuscripts, it sheds new light on Proust's character, his development as an artist, and his masterpiece In Search of Lost Time (long known in English as Remembrance of Things Past). The biography also sets Proust's life in the decadent artistic and social context of the French fin de siecle and the years leading up to World War I."

"The Parisian world of which Proust was a part was also home to such luminaries as Anatole France, Jean Cocteau, and Andre Gide. William C. Carter brings this social world to life while he explores the inner world of Proust's intellectual and artistic development, as well as his most intimate personal experience. Carter examines Proust's passionate attachment to his mother, his deep love for the scenes of his youth, his flirtation with Parisian high society, his complicated sexual desires, and his irrevocable commitment to literary truth - and shows how all of these played out in the making of his great novel."--Jacket.
