Product description


The best general study of Proust's 3,000-page work. Times Literary Supplement Genteel and meditative. Lingua Franca Bowie can say more in three sentences than many a scholar in a belabored chapter... This is criticism motivated by intellectual joy, creatively sustained by felicities of expression. -- Victor Brombert Los Angeles Times Bowie is one of our best living critics... [His] moving wit sends his reader straight back to the text itself. Which is what criticism should do. -- A. S. Byatt London Daily Telegraph Each [chapter] challenges traditional interpretations of Proust's handling of these themes, and deepens one's pleasure in and understanding of the novel... Excellent. Guardian A searching attempt to grasp the nature of Proust's vast project... Brilliant analyses. Times (London)
