The first volume of In Search of Lost Time, Proust’s incomparable masterpiece, Swann’s Way features both the narrator’s recollections of his childhood and one of the great love stories in literature, the tumultuous romance between Swann and Odette. Time, memory, imagination, love—all become infinitely more complex, mysterious, and wondrous in the light of Proust’s powers of perception. Please read the first part of “Combray” for the first session.
