Abstract:

The most complete scholarly work to study representations of plants in the writings of Marcel Proust. Proust took simple inspiration from the gardens he observed in his daily life. This book takes a different approach because it is based on the author's fiction and correspondence. It also explains how Proust was a chronic asthmatic, whose passion for plants actually caused him to suffer. Proust used plants as a creative tool, yet they also led to his physical decline.
