Since the original, prewar translation there has been no completely new rendering of the French original into English. This translation brings to the fore a more sharply engaged, comic and lucid Proust. IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME is one of the greatest, most entertaining reading experiences in any language. As the great story unfolds from its magical opening scenes to its devastating end, it is the Penguin Proust that makes Proust accessible to a new generation. Each book is translated by a different, superb translator working under the general editorship of Professor Christopher Prendergast, University of Cambridge.… (lisätietoja)

  therebelprince | Nov 15, 2020 |
Given a hard deadline by buying tickets to the recording of the Proust Backlisted podcast in Dec 2019, I read this one relatively quickly. Without that deadline I'm not sure I'd ever have finished it. Throughout The Prisoner the narrator (who is finally named as Marcel in this one, in case there was any remaining pretence of distance between author and narrator) is unhinged, jealous, obsessive and generally disagreeable. It's really frustrating and unpleasant to read.

The Fugitive is shorter and more contemplative, and involves a trip to Venice, I'm kind of struggling to remember much detail of it as I pushed straight through and onto the final volume. ( )

Greatest novel ever. Really. Just read biography of Proust by Edmund White and want to read more supplementary material (and still haven't read final volume). Would reward rereading; ideally should also be read in one long gulp, not as I have (a volume a year).

A couple of high-level comments:
1. The narrator's obsessiveness re his love interests is frustrating, and one comes to feel that it's overdone. However, as far as I can tell, Proust was actually like that (though the novel is NOT a memoir). It helps me forgive the obsessiveness, as a literary matter, because it is actually true to the author's life.
2. Albertine, his primary love interest, is not drawn with the same specificity that other characters are. What is she like and why is the narrator so in love with her? It's a bit hard to say (and even her beauty mark wanders across her face in different parts of the novel). According to Edmund White, this vagueness is due to Proust having combined more than one real lover in the character of Albertine. Still a real flaw but one I somehow can forgive, now that I know the historical reason. ( )

The Captive and The Fugitive are the fifth and sixth parts of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time. In The Captive, our narrator (also named Marcel) keeps his mistress Albertine in his apartment like -- you guessed it -- a prisoner, tormented by jealousy over lovers she may or may not have now, or have had in the past. He dithers over whether to stay in the relationship or break it off, and behaves in a creepy and controlling manner with her. I don’t want to reveal plot points, so will simply say this situation is resolved at the end of The Captive. In The Fugitive, Marcel has to deal with the consequences of this resolution.

Alongside this predominant storyline, other now familiar characters appear and either suffer socially or find their status elevated. The pompous and flamboyant Baron de Charlus gets his comeuppance and Marcel’s childhood love, Gilberte, makes an advantageous marriage.

Like the previous books in this work, there's a lot of internal monologue and not a lot of action. Proust analyzes, in depth, the feelings and motivations of Marcel and others at various levels of the social hierarchy. I have one volume left to read and am interested to see how this all wraps up.

I returned to volume 5 (of 7) of In search of Lost Time after a 3.5 month hiatus and found that it took me a while to get back into this, but then I ended up getting sucked back in. This volume begins the sections that were published posthumously and suffer a bit from lack of Proust's final edits. For instance, there are several characters who are discussed as dead and then very much alive later. It's definitely a completed work, though, just not as perfect as some of the early volumes.

This volume is the narrator (he sort of names himself as Marcel in this volume) at his absolute creepiest. He has convinced Albertine to come and live with him without a promise of marriage. She is the "captive" not allowed to come and go as she pleases, but supplied with beautiful clothes and amenities. Of course, there are also sexual favors involved - most disturbingly when the narrator chooses to enter Albertine's room as she sleeps. Yuck. Luckily, in the end Albertine leaves the narrator and I suppose she is The Fugitive in volume six.

There's an excellent set piece back in the Verdurin drawing room with the Baron de Charlus in top form and his relationship with Morel explored more deeply (troubling as well).

All in all, I enjoyed this volume, even though parts were pretty disturbing. Proust, or at least his narrator, has such an immature view of love. It's all based on possession, desire, and power. It makes me sad to think he died so young and may have never discovered a deep, quiet, trusting love.

In The Fugitive, the narrator mourns the loss of Albertine and takes a long-awaited trip to Venice with his mother. On their way back they receive letters giving them news of two marriages - Robert Saint-Loup with Gilberte Swann and Jupien's daughter with the Cambremer's son. Both of these marriages have huge class/societal implications that Proust has built up to throughout the preceding volumes. ( )
