Episode 7: Swann and Odette

Today's steps along the paths through Marcel Proust's classic novel In Search of Lost Time find us heading out into the streets of Paris and following Charles Swann as he searches for Odette. This episode traces Swann's emotional and physical journey, and the relationship that then develops between the couple.

Listening to Episode 7 of the Proustian Paths podcast will give you:

  • a 'map' of this section of Proust's narrative (pp. 229 - 253 of the edition published by Penguin).
  • a list of the physical and conceptual 'landmarks' needed to navigate this passage.
  • a discussion of the literary-critical view.

Join your audio tour guide and host Dr James Holden as we continue our gentle walk through Marcel Proust's masterpiece of French literature - A la recherche du temps perdu. The perfect podcast for both first time readers of Proust's work and dedicated Proustians alike.
