Über den Autor

Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust, known as Marcel Proust, was an eminent French novelist, critic, and essayist, best recognized for his monumental work 'À la recherche du temps perdu' ('In Search of Lost Time'; earlier translated as 'Remembrance of Things Past'). Proust's writing is lauded for its profound psychological insight and meticulous attention to detail. Born on July 10, 1871, in Auteuil, France, Proust's aristocratic upbringing and struggles with asthma shaped his introspective nature. His magnum opus, written between 1908 and 1922, is split into seven parts, with 'Swann's Way' ('Du côté de chez Swann'), being the first volume, published in 1913. In 'Swann's Way', Proust develops his distinctive narrative technique, the 'stream of consciousness,' immersing readers in the subjective experiences of his characters, most notably the narrator's memories of childhood and the social circles of Parisian high society. The novel is famed not only for its length and complexity but also for its thematic exploration of involuntary memory, time, and art. Although Proust's works received mixed reviews during his lifetime, his reputation as a writer has grown considerably since his death on November 18, 1922, establishing him as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century.
