ClassGraphic Paris in the late 1800s and early 1900s was one of the most exciting cities in the world. Its universities produced profound talents in every field of thought. People from all over the world flocked to it for its great artists, writers, fashions, restaurants, legendary theater, opera, and concert performances. Living in the midst of this aristocrat dominated and storied world, Marcel Proust wrote his masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time. The reading group will be continuing its reading of Proust’s autobiographical fiction In Search of Lost Time Volume III: The Guermantes Way (any edition acceptable). To get the most out of this study group, participants should be familiar with the first and/or second volumes of the novel. Supplemental materials for Volumes I and/or II will be provided. The primary focus of the study group is a collaborative reading of the novel. For Volume III, that means reading approximately 64 pages/week. Participants can lead or co-lead a class discussion of pages under review. All members can share in the leadership of the session by bringing in a question, passage, or theme for discussion. No class on 9/10/18.
