Proust: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Girard, Rene, Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Rene Girard, Robert Vigneron, Henri Peyre, Jacques Riviere, Albert Thibaudet, Walter A. Strauss, Germaine Bree, Georges Cattaui, Elliott Coleman, Leo Spitzer, Richard Macksey, Robert Champigny, Charles Du Bos, Ramon Fernandez, Georges Poulet, and Marcel Proust--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Marcel Proust. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. Topics covered include the legacy of Proust, images as instruments, intuition and philology, the profundity of Proust, and Proust and human time. A chronology of important dates in Proust's life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and a thirteen-item bibliography of works on Proust complete the volume.
