Within A Budding Grove, Part TwoStreaming Audiobook - 2013
In the second volume of Proust's great novel The Remembrance of Things Past, the narrator emerges as an actor in the drama of his own life. Swann has now dwindled into a husband for his former mistress Odette, and their daughter Gilberte becomes the adolescent narrator's playmate and tantalizing love object. We move from Paris to the seaside town of Balbec, from ritualized social performances to midsummer spontaneity, and from Gilberte to her successor Albertine. In Balbec, the narrator is befriended by the painter Elstir who introduces him both to the craft of painting and to the mysterious little band of girls. An artistic education is thus intricately interwoven with a journey of sexual self-discovery.
