Episode 8: Swann and Forcheville

Love quickly turns to jealousy along Swann's Way. In this episode of the Proustian Paths podcast we return to the Verdurin salon in Paris on the evening Odette introduces Forcheville to the little clan. He establishes himself there as a rival for Odette's love, sparking Swann's jealousy which we see played out as we follow the paths that take him to Odette's window late at night.


Join audio tour guide Dr. James Holden on the next leg of our gentle walk through this important work of French literature, Marcel Proust's classic novel A la recherche du temps perdu.


This episode will provide you with:


* a clear 'map' of the sequence - focusing on the social scene and the two 'window' scenes that are the beginning of Swann's jealousy.

* a discussion of the important physical, social and conceptual 'landmarks' Proust  places in the passage.

* an opportunity to take in the literary-critical view.


Proustian Paths is the perfect introduction to Marcel Proust's work for new readers and a way for dedicated Proustians to get a new view on the book they love.
