It's well worth it. A reading experience like no other. Proust writes some of the most consistently beautiful and lyrical prose you could possibly imagine. It's really a shame nobody reads it these days.

The famous scene in the beginning of Swann's Way has merrited psychology in that it is often linked to the concept of involuntary memory in which past memories are evoked without conscious effort, often by a certain smell or taste. It's an interesting and recurring theme throughout the novel. It's also referred to as 'Proustian memory'.

Let's get this straight. You've read everything by Joyce; everything by a lot of great contemporary authors; much by Proust; you've dabbled in Eliot and the likes, so why is it, that I feel as though your comments about them read as if they were a summary or review by someone other than yourself? Have you really read as much as you claim to have in your 20 years on this earth, or is it possible, good sir, that you are bullshitting a little?

Haha, you people. What do you want me to say? No one else is saying a damn thing about any of these writers - why would I spend precious time discussing Proust with myself when all I get in response are insults or a post such as yours?

What exactly can I do to satisfy your concerns, mermaid?

And for the records - I don't dabble in anything. I read these writers with passion and interest.
