Marcel Proust (BBC "Witness")

Voici un article sonore en anglais du BBC très intéressant, au sujet de Marcel Proust; avec des bribes d’entretiens en anglais et en français avec quelques personnes qui avaient fait la connaissance de M. Proust.

Merci, Ernie !

Thanks, Ernie.

On Proust’s short life, it is sobering to consider that Gabriel Fauré, the French composer whose work serves as background music for some Librivox recordings of Proust, was born some 26 years before Proust yet died two years after.

If you ever get a chance to read Edmund de Waal’s The Hare with Amber Eyes, you are in for a treat. Apart from being an extraordinary book about an extraordinary collection and extraordinary lives, there is a bonus for Proustians: Swann is modelled on EdW’s great-grandfather!
