5-0 out of 5 stars An interesting addendum to his novel
I'm going to assume that anyone interested in this book is already very familiar with, or has already read, A la reserche du temps perdu. If you have not, I would highly suggest you start with Proust's novel before moving along to insight on his thinking and/or writing. Truthfully, this book doesn't give away that much information about Proust the man, but contains a great deal on Proust the artist. Many of the essays contained within were published in the journals of the day, especially Le Figaro and La Revue Blanche, and are therefore written in a public style, carefully considered, analysing different topics from a mainly objective stance. In other words, this book documents less his private life and thoughts, which one may find in the many volumes of his correspondences, than his public, artistic life. This is worth mentioning because 'Contre Saint-Beauve' is one giant critique - an inadequate word - of the notion that an artist's biographical life is at all related to his artistic life.

'Contre Saint-Beauve' is an ethos that he developed several years earlier than his novel, though it plays a large part in the novel (and was not published until long after his death). This philosophy is partially explained in the later volumes of 'In Search Of Lost Time' when the narrator ruminates on Vinteuil's genius. Indeed, many of the characters and scene's in Proust's later novel find their early beginnings in a strange series of sketches that pop up throughout this essay. It was probably one of Proust's last stabbings at an academic or literary career, before he began his work on Swann's Way, but it proved to be very fertile ground.

Now, it's true that I originally bought this book for 'C S-B' alone, but I was very pleased to find that there were around two dozen other essays included. None of them match the length or depth of Saint-Beauve, but many of them are still very beautiful and incisive ('The Wane of Inspiration' is a particular favorite). Aside from a handful of random Proustian musings, the other essays deal with specific writers like Stendhal, Goethe and Tolstoi, or specific painters like Monet, Chardin and Rembrandt, or other such important figures of the era (even Robert de Montesquieu).

In brief, this book is definitely reserved for those who are already very familiar with 'In Search of Lost Time,' for much of the main essay is profoundly related to the novel, and much of the prose seems to be working towards the style he would later adopt. This book reveals very little of his personal life (see his theories in 'C S-B'), and stands independently as art. See Tadie for biography and Alain de Botton for general introductions. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
In 1904, while still working on his translations of Ruskin, Marcel Proust wrote to Maurice Barres "I still have two Ruskin's to do, and after that I shall try to translate my own poor soul, if it doesn't die in the meantime."Within a few years Proust would begin this translation of his "own poor soul"--the monumental Remembrance of Things Past, one of the great literary works of the 20th century.

In this volume of Proust's collected letters--translated by Terence Kilmartin, acclaimed for his work on the Moncrieff translation of Proust's works--the reader is carried inside this pivotal moment in a great writer's life. In a letter to Louis d'Albufera he lists the projects he has in hand: "a study on the nobility, a Parisian novel, an essay on Sainte-Beuve and Flaubert, an essay on Women, an essay on Pederasty (not easy to publish), a study on stained-glass windows, a study on tombstones, a study on the novel"--all subjects that eventually found their way into Remembrance of Things Past.The final letter in the volume talks of alterations to his flat "which are essential for my peace and quiet"--an allusion no doubt to the cork-lined room in which he would spend so many years continuing to pursue his quest for "Lost Time."

The letters are intriguing for what they say about the work, but they also offer an intimate portrait of the man--the sometime invlaid recluse, sometime socialite. Although Proust spent a great deal of time insulated at home, when he does go out it is clear that the talent for malicious observation so evident in Guermantes Way was already quite sharp.He refers to a group of dowagers he'd seen at a concert as "portraits of monsters from the time when people didn't know how to draw."And his letters to his devoted friend the composer Reynaldo Hahn are full of wit, scurrilous gossip and a great deal of teasing.He also carries on lively exchanges with two very different women--Marie Nordlinger, a serious, dedicated artist, and Louisa de Mornand, a frivolous, mercenary actress.His letters to Marie are affectionate, but his letters to Louisa are amorous--sometimes even salacious, (possibly because she served as a surrogate for his real interst, her lover Albufera.)Proust's celebrated devotion to his mother is also evident in this collection.Theirs is an intimate and loving correspondence, and her death in 1905 is clearly a tremendous blow ("My life has now forever lost its only purpose, its only sweetness, its only consolation.")

This long-awaited volume will be welcomed by scholars and general readers alike.The letters offer a special insight into the man and his art during a crucial period, and they are as delightful to read--as beautifully crafted, witty and poignant--as his fiction. ... Read more
