Read full description of the books Un amore di Swann:"Sono sempre libera, e lo sarò sempre per voi": è la stessa, enigmatica Odette de Crécy a offrirsi per prima a Swann, che ancora non l'ama. Eppure, col passare del tempo, col radicarsi del desiderio, Swann, raffinato uomo di mondo, ricercato anche nel prestigioso faubourg Saint-Germain, frequenterà assiduamente -per lei- un ben più modesto salotto borghese, quello dei Verdurin. Sarà proprio la sua superiorità sociale e culturale a renderlo insopportabile ed estraneo a questo piccolo ambiente e a minare il suo rapporto con Odette, che, rivelando una leggerezza e una corruzione insospettate, sfuggirà man mano a Swann, ormai profondamente innamorato e ossessionato dalla gelosia. "Un amore di Swann" è un episodio in sé compiuto, un autentico "romanzo nel romanzo" all'interno di quel capolavoro che è "Alla ricerca del tempo perduto".
Read information about the authorFrench novelist, best known for his 3000 page masterpiece À la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past or In Search of Lost Time), a pseudo-autobiographical novel told mostly in a stream-of-consciousness style. Born in the first year of the Third Republic, the young Marcel, like his narrator, was a delicate child from a bourgeois family. He was active in Parisian high society during the 80s and 90s, welcomed in the most fashionable and exclusive salons of his day. However, his position there was also one of an outsider, due to his Jewishness and homosexuality. Towards the end of 1890s Proust began to withdraw more and more from society, and although he was never entirely reclusive, as is sometimes made out, he lapsed more completely into his lifelong tendency to sleep during the day and work at night. He was also plagued with severe asthma, which had troubled him intermittently since childhood, and a terror of his own death, especially in case it should come before his novel had been completed. The first volume, after some difficulty finding a publisher, came out in 1913, and Proust continued to work with an almost inhuman dedication on his masterpiece right up until his death in 1922, at the age of 51.
Today he is widely recognised as one of the greatest authors of the 20th Century, and À la recherche du temps perdu as one of the most dazzling and significant works of literature to be written in modern times.
