What Did Marcel Proust Do? [SOLVED]

In Search of Lost Time, like many great literary works, is a quest whose structure resembles that of a symphony 🙌 The novel’s major themes—love, art, time, and memory—are carefully and brilliantly orchestrated throughout the book 🙈 The opening pages, which Proust called the overture, state in a musical, intimate, and subtle manner the goal of the quest, which is to find the answer to life’s essential questions: Who am I? What am I’m to making of this life? As Proust’s title indicates, the main character, known as the Narrator or Marcel, is searching for his own identity and the meaning of life 😁 As he tells his story, he speaks to us in a voice that is one of the most engaging and enchanting in all of literature.

Marcel tyres of them and their circle. He realises that virtues and vices are scattered throughout the population without regard to income or renown. He grows free to devote himself to a wider range of people. Though Proust spends many pages lampooning social snobbery, it’s in a spirit of understanding and underlying sympathy. The urge to social climb is a highly natural error, especially when one is young. It is normal to suspect that there might be a class of superior people somewhere out in the world and that our lives might be dull principally because we don’t have the right contacts. But Proust’s novel offers definitive reassurance: life is not going on elsewhere. [2]

Proust’s childhood was marked with the beginning of chronic asthma attacks which continued throughout his life. Proust studied at the Lycée Condorcet but his asthmatic condition did not allow him to attend school as a regular student. However, he was still a prominent student, particularly, in literature and received an award in his final year. Despite bad health, Proust served in the army from 1882 to 1889 after which he studied law at École des Sciences Politiques during 1891-1893. He’s having written for the Symbolist magazines and moved in the social circles of rich and famous Parisian aristocrats. He published his first book entitled, Les Plaisirs et les Jours in 1896. It was a collection of essays, short stories and poems. In 1895, Proust began writing Jean Santeuil, abandoning it in 1899. The novel was never finished.

Theculturetrip.com also mentions that marcel Proust (1871–1922) is one of France’s greatest literary legends, world-famous for his monumental novel À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time), but there’s a sad truth behind its world-breaking records. Marcel Proust’s masterpiece of a novel À la recherche du temps perdu stands out in literary history for its epic length, with over 1.5 million words spilling out across 3000-4000 pages, depending on the edition. The work charts the narrator’s thoughtful recollections of childhood and transition into adulthood in the late 19th century to early 20th century aristocratic France, all the while musing over the loss of meaning in a modernising world.
