Reading Proust: In Search of the Wolf-Fish

Examining Proust used to be first released in 1994. What readers of Proust in English translation pass over, besides so much of his critics, is how accurately his writing works, how precisely his refined craftsmanship weaves the spell that turns out to enchant and distract those that come across it. Even critics who soak up the idiosyncrasies of Proust's textual content, Maria Paganini asserts, refuse to check its limits for worry of working into the writer's planned opacities.
