Résumé

A matchless close reading of Remembrance of Things Past and a lesson in how to read the great books profitably and pleasurably. Bowie asserts that Proust's novel is one of the great exercises in speculative imagining in the world's literature and that its originality lies first in the quality of Proust's textual invention -- line after line, page after page.

Proust Among the Stars Résumé

Proust Among the Stars Malcolm Bowie

For many, Proust is the supreme European writer of the twentieth century. This book tackles his achievement head-on. Art, death, sex, politics, loss, guilt, morality-Proust's major themes are revealed and explained here. Proust Among the Stars is a matchless close reading of Remembrance of Things Past and a lesson in how to read the great books profitably and pleasurably. Malcolm Bowie asserts that Proust's novel is one of the great exercises in speculative imagining in the world's literature; and that its originality lies first in the quality of Proust's textual invention, page after page, line after line. Proust's world constantly shimmers with a sense of multiple possibilities and is at the same time infused with the urge to order, obsessively to organize. Bowie examines how Proust achieves this in his writing, as opposed to his themes, plots, or theories. An original, beautiful, and deeply moving book, Proust Among the Stars shows how Proust's work deepens our understanding of our lives and ourselves.

Proust Among the Stars Avis

The best general study of Proust's 3,000-page work. Times Literary Supplement Genteel and meditative. Lingua Franca Bowie can say more in three sentences than many a scholar in a belabored chapter... This is criticism motivated by intellectual joy, creatively sustained by felicities of expression. -- Victor Brombert Los Angeles Times Bowie is one of our best living critics... [His] moving wit sends his reader straight back to the text itself. Which is what criticism should do. -- A. S. Byatt London Daily Telegraph Each [chapter] challenges traditional interpretations of Proust's handling of these themes, and deepens one's pleasure in and understanding of the novel... Excellent. Guardian A searching attempt to grasp the nature of Proust's vast project... Brilliant analyses. Times (London)
