Über den Autor

Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust, born on July 10, 1871, in Auteuil, France, is best known for his monumental work 'À la recherche du temps perdu' (In Search of Lost Time), a seven-volume novel published between 1913 and 1927, which was translated into English by C. K. Scott Moncrieff. Proust's magnum opus is renowned for its profound exploration of themes such as memory, time, and identity. Proust grew up in an affluent and cultured environment, which deeply influenced his appreciation for the arts and literature. His social observations and introspective narrative style immersed readers in the lives of 19th and early 20th-century French society, revealing the subtleties of social class and human psychology. A pioneer of the modern stream-of-consciousness technique, Proust sculpted a detailed and intricate portrait of the human condition, filled with poignant insights and lyrical prose. Despite battling chronic asthma throughout his life, Proust's dedication to his art was unwavering. His work continues to be a cornerstone of literary studies and has profoundly impacted subsequent generations of writers and thinkers. The sheer depth and beauty of Proust's language and character analysis have placed 'In Search of Lost Time' amongst the greatest literary achievements of all time.
