Conquering Proustian Terror

Arts Sarasota
March 1, 2013

If you’ve always wanted to read Marcel Proust’s “In Search of Lost Time” (previously translated as “Remembrance of Things Past”) and for whatever reason were too intimidated to begin the seven-volume journey, Elyane Dezon-Jones and Jocelyn Van Tuyl have some advice. The two are organizers of this month’s reading and film festival based on the first volume of the 1913 literary classic, “Swann’s Way.” “Proust Project Sarasota —Swann’s Way: A Hundredth Birthday Celebration” gets under way on Tuesday with a lecture at New College of Florida. Throughout the month of March, lectures, discussions and film screenings will offer points of entry into the French opus.
