In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower: In Search of Lost Time, Vol. 2 (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Marcel Proust


In the Shadow of younger ladies in Flower is Proust’s wonderful dissection of male and woman youth, charged with the narrator’s thoughts of Paris and the Normandy seashore. on the center of the tale lie his relationships together with his grandmother and with the Swann kinfolk. As a meditation on various varieties of love, In the Shadow of younger women in Flower has no equivalent. right here, Proust introduces a few of his maximum comedian innovations, from the magnificently boring M. de Norpois to the mesmerizing Robert de Saint-Loup. it's memorable besides for the 1st visual appeal of the 2 figures who for greater or worse are to dominate the narrator’s life—the Baron de Charlus and the mysterious Albertine.
