    One thought on “Time Regained”

    1. Longtemps I asked myself if, instead of reading Marcel Proust on my Kindle, I shouldn’t have bought physical books to read in my bed to perhaps be an inch closer to his conditions while he was writing his masterpiece, as having a cork-lined bedroom proved to be impossible this year. Each time I started and finished a volume, I would again ask myself if I should get a paperback edition instead. However, as I had already all seven volumes digitally, and I knew such a big commitment of reading we [...]

    2. This is not a review of this book. This is a testimony of having reached the end of marcel Proust’s La Recherche du temps perdu, as scheduled in The Year of Reading Proust 2013. I started on January 1st and finished it on December 29th.I have actually read the 53 weekly reading divisions at least two times. So, I have read the full novel twice. I also listened, while reading, to the 111 CDs of the Thélème audio edition.If the novel was written in bed with the light from one single side lamp, [...]

    3. take that, proust - i have finished you!!summer of proust is OVER!!if i were to make a collage of the final volume of proust, i would use the following images:this one started off with some really tantalizing situations and then quickly backed off into more philosophical abstractions. dammit, proust, when you have gay bondage, stay with gay bondage!! and war!! these are exciting themes!! don't drift off into thinky time!!the frustration i have with this one is the frustration i have with philoso [...]

    5. My clearest memory of reading Swann's Way consists of pouring over one of the large illustrations, softly colored and darkly lit and so much more interesting than the Biomaterials lecture I was sitting in, an aisle-edged seat that necessitated swift cover ups from the professor's gaze as well as ensured a swift getaway at the ring of the bell. Now, I am at the close of eleven months on, more than three hundred miles away from the beginning and likely to never join in on such a high and mighty sc [...]

    6. You made it! After 2000 some-odd pages, you made it to the end of La Recherche. Your reward is a breath-taking description of Paris under falling bombs during WW I, one of the most incredible passages that Proust ever wrote, "La Bal des Masques" (The Masked Ball), and an end to the most incredible literary voyage ever attempted by an author. He, like Mozart and Bach, literally died with the pen in his hand finishing his blessed cahiers (notebooks) in a race against death. It is a perfect ending [...]

    7. (Jean Béraud, Le Bal)Uma review terá como objetivo incentivar, quem a lê, a ler (ou não ler) o livro a que ela se refere. Também recordar uma leitura (adoro ler reviews de um livro que já li), ou apreciar outras visões de uma obra. Gostava muito de conseguir conquistar leitores para Em Busca do Tempo Perdido e poder desfrutar das suas opiniões. Consciente que não tenho arte para essa missão, socorro-me da do Nelson Zagalo"Só pela arte podemos sair de nós mesmos () é o caminho em sen [...]

    8. As of 20:50 on July Seventh, Two Thousand and Ten, I'm still slightly reeling from finishing this book, roughly twenty two hours ago. Like ninety nine point some high number percent of my reading experiences I read this in less than optimum conditions; by plowing through the last hundred pages or so at a un-Proustian pace. There are parts of the text I'm sure I missed, little subtleties I could have enjoyed and blah blah blah, but I think the overload was also Proustian, especially in light of w [...]

    9. To say I've read the complete seven-volume novel now is truth and lie since it'll take a few more trips down the pair of "ways" and "transversals" before I can really call this "read." Maybe my favorite volume for the fifty-page stretch where M. explicitly addresses the work to come. Some of the best writing about writing I've read. Otherwise, threads are tied up -- plus there's literal tying up (bondage), pedophilia (only a mention), WWI in Paris, zeppelins and airplane fighters at night (the p [...]

    10. So, I am finished, and I could've finished the night before, but as I approached 98% on my Kindle, I decided to stop as I was so tired at that point, I didn't want to rush that last percent (documents stop at 99% on my device); it was a good decision, as the last percent was one to especially savor. I then got on GR to announce my accomplishment (because without GR, I doubt I would've ever read this opus) and almost immediately Kalliope congratulated me on becoming a fellow Proustian, generous [...]

    11. I've been reading Proust for just over a year, just a little a day. I'm going to miss dipping into it, it's become part of my life. Still so beautifully written that it's almost impossible to review. Some of the old favourites return again; Gilberte, Charlus, Morel, Mme Verdurin amongst others. The time period spans the First World War and takes us into the narrators' middle age and towards his own death. Memory and the weight of the past recur as themes and it is as though the narrator is makin [...]

    13. Wow, Proust kills it with this last book in his masterpiece In Search of Lost Time. He pulls it all together. I loved Proust's reflections on literary and artistic creation, reality, memory, pain, death and time -- and how in 'Time Regained' he draws all his themes together. I'm almost sad my stroll with Proust is over. There are few books I've ever wanted to start reading again immediately after finishing. Today as I was setting down 'Time Regained', I almost reached for 'Swann's Way'. I feel l [...]

    15. Sunday was Community Day at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, which meant free entry to all. Deciding to take advantage of this at the expense of a gorgeous late summer day, I spent a couple of hours wandering through the impressive but under-construction building, primarily in the European and American wings that cover the last few centuries. I stopped in front of 200 or so paintings, but only two “spoke” to me. While in many circumstances a one-percent hit rate implies a horrible failure [...]

    16. When I first begin reading, “In Search of Lost Time,” I had planned to read it throughout 2015. I now find myself halfway through 2016, but I have – eventually – finished this enormous work. I can say that, rather than get to the last page with relief, I actually feel a great sense of loss. Proust has become my companion and to think I will not be in his company during any part of the day almost makes me want to go back to the beginning and begin again!This last volume has, “Time Regai [...]

    17. Note: In this review, I will use “Proust” to refer to the writer of the work and “Marcel” to refer to his name sake character in the work. When I started learning French, one of the goals I set for myself and promised myself was that I would one day read A la recherche du temps perdu, all of it, in French. I even shelled out for a leather bound illustrated version of the French classic, which was my pledge to myself towards redeeming that promise. Those seven volumes sat on my shelf for [...]

    18. this is another much later later later later addition: having fun right now reading a graphic adaptation of volume 1: Swann's Way- review is here: /book/show/2, so maybe you want to read this book first or that book first?this is another much later later later addition: if i am recalling the very beginning of proust correctly, there is a passage connecting a 'magic lantern' and sleeping disorientation, freedom from physical, from temporal, locales, and some indication this dreaming status is wha [...]

    19. Desde a altura em que completei a "colecção" dos sete volumes de "Em busca do tempo perdido" (há cerca de uma década) que apregoava que haveria de ler esta obra na íntegra antes dos 40 anos. Não sei explicar o porquê desta vontade Talvez porque na época não me sentia demasiado amadurecida enquanto leitora para me aventurar nesta viagem e julguei que haveria um sem número de livros que deveria ler antecipadamente.Comecei a leitura do primeiro volume a pouco mais de 18 meses da idade est [...]

    20. A work of art is experienced as a temporal, durational phenomenon. It is also an object of physicality, something that is reacted upon and reproduced by our senses and processed, firstly, by our intellect. Therefore a work of art is an object of space-time, as it contains within itself dimension and duration, properties availing themselves of our immediate sensory perceptions and our ruminative, reflective abilities at the same instant. If an image especially strikes us as it is burned onto the [...]

    24. Le Temps retrouvé termine cette Recherche du temps perdu. Ce dernier tome est dédié à ces deux phénomènes inexorables que sont la sénescence et la transformation du monde. L’âge marque peu à peu le narrateur et la petite société qu’il fréquente, la guerre qui est arrivé a métamorphosé les clivages de la société, et rendus ceux d’hier caduques. Comment retenir le passage du temps ? Pour le narrateur, c’est l’écriture qui sera la clef, après le choc de la madeleine, et [...]

    25. There’s this thing I do when I like something very very much and it is that I try to delay the end as long as possible. In fact, when I become obsessed with TV series, and they come to an end, I don’t watch the last episode: if I never do it, there’s always some piece of it remaining. However, this is the first time I do it with a book, for it’s been almost three months since I read the previous volume. So reading In search of lost time took me one year, two months and three days — par [...]

    27. Murakami e Bechdel estavam errados. Murakami considerou que para ler “Em Busca do Tempo Perdido” era necessário que alguma vez nos encontrássemos presos ou fugidos durante bastante tempo (no 3º tomo de "1Q84"). Já para Bechdel, as pessoas atingiriam a meia-idade quando se dessem conta que nunca iriam ler “Em Busca do Tempo Perdido” (em “Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic”). Não sei se foi para demonstrar que não tinham razão, apenas sei que era um título que me acompanhava há dé [...]

A determinada altura (p. 117) Marcel refere-se aos aeroplanos que cruzam os céus de Paris (plena primeira guerra mundial), caracteriza-os:"A maior impressão de beleza que aquelas estrelas cadentes e humanas nos causavam talvez viesse sobretudo de nos obrigarem a olhar para o céu, para onde habitualmente pouco erguemos os olhos."E os sete volumes do livro de Proust apresentam "aquelas estrelas cadentes e humanas", uma delas chama-se Swann. Marcel já não me falava de aviões mas das personage [...]

    29. I'm very glad that I have now read ISOLT and have some glimmer of why so many have devoured and loved this work for so long. I will return with more of a review.
