Synopsis

Depending on the version you read, after almost four thousand pages, the reader can be forgiven for feeling exhausted before embarking upon the seventh volume of Proust's massive masterpiece A la recherche du temps perdu. The work is an epic journey, but the sweeping first volume (Swann's Way, and doesn't that seem so long ago now?) has an equally powerful mirror in the last volume. Time Regained takes Proust's overarching theme of Time and wraps us up in his reflection upon the journey we have just taken with him. All of the major characters of the book make an appearance in this volume, all of them aged almost beyond recognition, and it is that fact that brings our faithless narrator to the startling realization that finally allows him to sit down and write this damned book in the first place.
