Proust for beginners by Stephen Bachmann( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proust For Beginners is a compelling biography of French novelist Marcel Proust and a vivid portrait of his times. It also serves as a concise guide and critical review of In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu, 7 volumes, 1913-1927), one of the most difficult--yet widely taught--works of French literature. With extensive passages from In Search of Lost Time and other essential works, Proust For Beginners highlights the defining themes and unique literary style of a modern master whom many have heard about but few fully fathom. It portrays Proust and the milieu in which he wrote in vivid detail, bringing to life the "Proustian moments" at the heart of his greatest work--and our own everyday experience. Proust's masterpiece "begins in a series of rooms in which he unlocks themes, styles, references, and foreshadows," writes Harold Augenbraum in the foreword. Proust For Beginners will provide the key.--Amazon.com

The collected poems : a dual-language edition with parallel text by Marcel Proust( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most complete volume of Proust's poetry ever assembled. As a young man, Proust could not decide if he was a poet or a prose writer. Even after he embarked on his masterful In Search of Lost Time at the age of thirty-seven, he never stopped writing poetry. His verse is playful, filled with affection and satire, and is peppered with witty barbs at friends and people in his social circle of aristocrats, writers, musicians, and courtesans. Few of the poems presented here under the editorship of Harold Augenbraum, founder of the Proust Society of America, have ever been published in book form or translated into English until now. In this dual-language edition with parallel text, Augenbraum has brought together twenty renowned poets and poetry translators to bring Proust's exuberant verse back to life."--Book Flap
