Abstract [en]

We all know what Proust’s novel is about. A tale of quest and long-delayed discovery, A la recherche du temps perdu (1913-27) is an artist’s novel where the narrator aspires to become a writer and eventually decides to write… an artist’s novel. It takes him a long time to arrive at that point. We have to read close to three thousand pages of Remembrance of Things Past before the narrator finally finds his material - himself and his past life. In the final volume, the grand design becomes apparent. If we look at Proust’s novel from another angle, a different scenario comes into view. We realize that the narrator, as a writer in waiting, must hold back. He must resist. He must delay, postpone, persevere - or else the climax would come early. In volume after volume, he sounds his fears that he’ll never succeed at becoming a writer, much less acquire artistic recognition. As he must. To be sure, some way into the novel he gets a piece of writing accepted for publication in the pages of Le Figaro. When he sees it in print, he is ecstatic; after all, it is his debut as writer.

Abstract [en]

The author analyses the role of modern pieces of machinery whose purpose in Marcel Proust's novel cycle À la recherche du temps perdu becomes aesthetic. Railroad, phonography, telegraphy, telephony, cinematography, x-ray technology, automobiles, airplanes - all that passes forward in front of the reader's eyes, reinforcing the cycle's grand theme: The lost time'. Modernity, as Ms. Danius argues, brings about an emancipation of the senses in that the latter are no more merely an instrument of cognition but are transferred to the sphere of aesthetics.
