The awarding of the Goncourt Prize to Proust for the second volume of his great work, In Search of Lost Time, took place in September 1919.  A hundred years later we will read this volume, In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower, in William Carter’s edition of the Moncrieff English translation. In an earlier class we confronted the difficulties of approaching Proust's vast novel and will continue attentive close reading with discussion of how the new material fits or discomfits what we thought Proust was up to.  Newcomers to Proust will have plenty of opportunity for questions, but should ideally have read independently the three sections of Swann’s Way. Six Mondays: Feb. 3, 10, 17, 24, March 2, 9 from 1 to 3 p.m.
