A vast continent to explore, Proust’s correspondence constitutes a vital bridge between his intimate fortress and the outside world. Oscillating between mundane conversations and deep introspection, his letters show how to transform weakness into literary vocation and illness into a resource of genius.

L’auteur

A world reference in 20th century literature, Marcel Proust (1871-1922) wrote almost every day of his life from the solitude of his bedroom where he composed his monumental In Search of Lost Time. An indefatigable reader, sensitive and anxious, Proust questioned in his work the relationship between time and writing, cultivating the memory of lost moments.
