Title: The Imagery of Proust.
Description: Basil Blackwell, Oxford, 1966, Ist edition.. 274 pp, 8vo (8 7/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ",,,an analytic study of the imagery in Proust's 'A la recherche du temps perdu', with incidental reference to some of the other works..Similies and metaphors are first classified and tabulated under various headings: descriptive/analytical; concrete/abstract; visual/olfactory, etc. This statistical analysis is only a preliminary to a detailed examination of imagery related to themes (nature, aesthetics, love, etc.), and a careful consideration of images classified according to source (nature, science, literature, the arts, etc.). The introduction outlines the method used and the next two chapters explore imagery under the headings of themes and sources. The third chapter is devoted to techniques and the book concludes with a select bibliography and a detailed index. The general conclusion indicates that the core of Proust's style is his use of images and without a full understanding of them, one cannot appreciate either the unity or the profound meaning of 'A la recherche du temps perdu'." Very light browning to pages, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small bump at corners of front board. Dust jacket is price clipped, has moderate edge wear/wrinkling, light soiling, three tears, very small chips, fading to spine and edges, now in mylar sleeve. VG/Fair.
