Deftly blending the personal and the historical, this program is an illuminating and accessible introduction to the life and work of Marcel Proust, whose novel Remembrance of Things Past changed the face of literature. Interviews with writers Dame Iris Murdoch, Shelby Foote, and writer-critic Roger Shattuck highlight the magnitude of Proust's accomplishment, while dramatizations of key scenes from Proust's life combine with rare archival footage to place his personal struggle in a historical context. The film was co-produced by William C. Carter, author of the critically acclaimed Proust biography. Archival interviews include Jean Cocteau, Francois Mauriac, and Celeste Albaret, Proust's long-time friend and assistant.
