An online study guide and message board for
An online "dossier" devoted to
Proust's novel, and in particular, to Le
Temps retrouvé. This is a great site
that gives equal time to the novel as it does to
Proust's life. It features a detailed
chronology, brief sections on time, memory, and the
characters of the novel, as well as an account of
Proust's "project" and an overview of
the collection of Proust's manuscripts and
typescripts at the Bibliothèque nationale de
France. However, the pages given to Le Temps
retrouvé are the real treat of this
site. There's a nice, small summary of the plot,
but you can also view each page of Proust's
manuscript, as well as a hyperlinked version of the
first edition. It's a wonderful use of the power
of the Web for scholarly ends.
