Proust: The Captive

  • Sep 20, 2014 · 2:00 PM

Cities of the Plain culminated in Marcel’s  haunted decision to carry Albertine off to Paris.  The following volume, evocatively titled The Captive, explores the affair between our hero and the object of his obsession.  Echoes of Swann’s unhappy adventure with Odette will probably reappear in this section as a sort of ominous love-leitmotif. We shall see if it will be as fatal for Marcel as it was for Swann.

For our next meeting we will read the entire Captive.

    Hello. Is it possible to appreciate this volume without having read the preceding ones?

      Yes it is! Each volume stands on its own - more or less. Please feel free to join us. : )

    Due to popular demand as well as multiple schedule conflicts, we will resume Proust in September. : )
