In 2022, we are commemorating the centennial of Marcel Proust’s death with an extraordinary salvo of publications, exhibitions, and acclamations. “Proust is the man of the year,” advertised the Italian magazine La Repubblica on New Year’s Day. It gives us an occasion to evaluate the magnitude of his novel, Remembrance of Things Past or In Search of Lost Time, and also to compare this anniversary with the previous one, 1971, a century after Proust’s birth. His star hasn’t stopped rising.
Antoine Compagnon, member of the French Academy, honorary member of the Japan Academy, professor emeritus at Collège de France, Paris, professor at Columbia University, New York, published books on Montaigne, Pascal, Baudelaire, Proust, Colette, theory of literature and history of criticism. In 2022, his Proust du côté juif came out, as well as a new edition of Proust’s Essais in the “Bibliothèque de la Pléiade”.
