The Enduring Relevance of Proust

October 18, 2013 | By French Culture

In conjunction with the French Embassy's centennial celebration of the publication of Proust's Swann's Way, Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy, Antonin Baudry spoke to CUNY TV about the enduring relevance of Proust. He argues that the author is not only important to the history of literature, but also psychoanalysis and philosophy. Proust's work is still relevant today, Baudry argues, because it is universal, "it describes all the internal mechanisms we discover in ourselves." And, of course, it is also fun.
