    Marcel Proust (1871–1922) spent fourteen years creating In Search of Lost Time , his seven-volume magnum opus.

    Editions Rodopi 2013; US$ 63.00

    Marguerite Yourcenar a répété qu’on ne comprenait bien l’histoire du présent qu’à la lumière du passé. Dans cette affirmation, il y a assurément une vérité difficilement réfutable. Cependant, ne juger que d’après le passé, n’est-ce pas poser a priori que le présent n’en est que la reproduction et que rien ne change jamais dans l’histoire de l’humanité... more...
