Proust, une langue étrangère

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Proust, a foreign language

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Proust was strongly opposed to the idea of a naturally “clear” national language whose directives would be inherent in thought itself. This book questions Proust’s style from the point of view of its theorization and the implementation of diffuse sensory rhetoric in À la recherche du temps perdu.
