'The memory of a particular image is only regret for a particular moment...'The Swann Way is the first volume of Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time (1913-27), one of the most important novels of the twentieth century. The work is a portal to Proust's novel and an introduction to its unforgettable first-person narrator-protagonist. Immersed in themes of time, memory, identity, art, sensation, love, and jealousy, the narrator embarks on the story of his life and the paths he takes towards fulfilling his vocation as a writer. Principally focused on the narrator's childhood, this volume lays the foundation of Proust's extraordinary literary edifice. The first volume in a major new translation of In Search of Lost Time, co-edited by Brian Nelson and Adam Watt.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
