Proust's Additions book.

Proust's Additions book. With an extensive and original survey of the post-1914 manuscripts, typescripts and proofs of A la recherche du temps perdu, Alison Winton provides an intellectual and spiritual biography of one of the greatest twentieth-century European novelists, at the height of his creative period. She shows what ideas, images and aspects of personality were increasingly preoccupying Proust as he inserted more and more episodes into his novel.

Cette matière constitue son œuvre principale : A la recherche du temps perdu, publiée en partie à titre posthume. Le premier tome, refusé par Gallimard, est publié à compte d'auteur chez Grasset. Gallimard accepte le deuxième volume, A l'ombre des jeunes filles en fleurs, récompensé par le Prix Goncourt en 1919. It is only the second half, starting with "Un Amour de Swann.

Each volume contains notes, addenda and synopses, and the sixth and final volume also includes a guide to the complete work. Proust makes fine distinctions among his auditory torments: The valet de chambre makes noise and that doesn't matter. But later he knocks with little tiny raps. The final volume of a new, definitive text of "A la recherche du temps perdu" was publishedby the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989.

The first four volumes of Proust's masterpiece in a single file, in the original French. Du côté de chez Swann, 1913; A L'Ombre des Jeunes Filles en Fleurs, 1919 ; Le Côté de Guermantes, 1920-1921; and Sodome et Gommorrhe, 1921-1922. Begun in 1909, À la recherche du temps perdu consists of seven volumes spanning some 3,200 pages and teeming with more than 2,000 literary characters.

The trick – in Proust’s eyes – is to recover the powers of appreciation of a child in adulthood, to strip the veil of habit and therefore to start to look upon daily life with a new and more grateful sensitivity. This for Proust is what one group in the population does all the time: artists. Proust’s goal isn’t that we should necessarily make art or be someone who hangs out in museums.

It has previously not been feasible to study in depth the expansion of Proust's famous novel, A la recherche du temps perdu. In 1913, the novel was to be 1500 pages; by 1922, when Proust died, it was 3000. How did it grow to such proportions? Which characters were always there - which ones sprang from their author's imagination in his very last years? Had Proust always been as interested in certain psychological phenomena as he was to become during the First World War and after? With the public release of the Proust manuscripts, these questions can be answered with a greater range, and certainty.
