Pleasures and Regrets
This was Proust’s first published work, appearing when he was only 25, and it consists of stories, sketches, and thematic writings on a variety of subjects. The attitudes reflect many of the characteristics of the fin de siècle, yet Proust illumined them with the unique shafts of observation and gift of analysis that he was later to perfect in The Remembrance of Things Past. This book is a period piece of intricate delights and subtle flavors that will be relished by the author’s many admirers.
