Summary:
That Marcel Proust and the theater of his time were not strangers to one another is evident to even the most casual reader of A la recherche du temps perdu.

Abstract:

That Marcel Proust and the theater of his time were not strangers to one another is evident to even the most casual reader of A la recherche du temps perdu. From Mr. Linn’s thoroughgoing investigation, however, it is clear that the significance of this remarkable abundance of theatrical and dramatic references, both in Proust’s great novel and his other fiction, is far greater than has heretofore been suspected. For Mr. Linn uncovers a very definite pattern and a rigid control in Proust’s deployment of theatrical metaphor and allusion, in his use of quotations from the drama, and in the parallels he draws between the actions of plays, events in real life, and the lives of his characters.
