Sodom and Gomorrah: In Search of Lost Time, Volume 4 (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Marcel Proust


Sodom and Gomorrah—now in an outstanding translation by way of John Sturrock—takes up the subject of gay love, female and male, and dwells on how damaging sexual jealousy might be if you undergo it. Proust’s novel is usually an unforgiving research of either the decadent excessive society of Paris and the increase of a philistine bourgeoisie that's in an effort to supplanting it. Characters who had lesser roles in prior volumes now reappear in a special gentle and take middle level, significantly Albertine, with whom the narrator believes he's in love, and the insanely haughty Baron de Charlus.
