Proust’s Muse, The Countess Greffulhe features extraordinary fashions from the legendary wardrobe of Élisabeth de Caraman-Chimay, the Countess Greffulhe (1860–1952). A famous beauty celebrated for her “aristocratic and artistic elegance,” the countess was a fashion icon comparable to Daphne Guinness today.

Clive James,  Gate of Lilacs. A Verse Commentary on Proust, Picador, 2016

Over a period of fifteen years Clive James learned French by almost no other method than reading À la recherche du temps perdu. Then he spent half a century trying to get up to speed with Proust’s great novel in two different languages. Gate of Lilacs is the unique product of James’s love and engagement with Proust’s eternal masterpiece.

Anne Simon, Trafics de Proust. Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Deleuze, Barthes, Paris, Hermann, coll. « Philosophie », 2016.

Trafics de Proust

Un commerce intime, tantôt exalté, tantôt inavouable, entre l’œuvre de Proust et celles de Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Deleuze ou Barthes se joue au cœur des années 1950-1970, au moment où sont renouvelées les façons d’envisager l’écriture théorique. Si le romancier les a particulièrement captivés, c’est que son œuvre venait amplifier ou heurter non seulement leur pratique réflexive, mais le sens même de leur existence et de leur engagement dans l’écriture. Du roman au traité naît une étrange érotique des pensées, où se créent des partages sereins, des négociations passionnées, des appariements effrayants. Continuer la lecture de A.
