about

This book is the second of seven volumes of C. K. Scott Moncrieff's popular translation of Proust's massive semi-autobiographical novel, A la Recherche du Temps Perdu. In this, Proust continues his ruminations on the things in his life that stir within his memory, and he continues his impossibly intricate descriptions of people and of places. The book is in two major parts, opening with "Mme. Swann at Home", which gives an intimate portrait of Odette (the cocotte who was the object of love in Swann's Way), now married to M. Swann. Our narrator is now in love with Swann's daughter, Gilberte, but abandons her in what seems like a juvenile fit of pique. Yet, the narrator (not often referred to as Marcel) can still turn a piercing eye upon his motivations and come away leaving the reader overwhelmed with his verbal acuity. Later, in Place Names: The Place, Proust relates his arrival, with his beloved grandmother, at the seaside resort town of Balbec.
