In Search of Lost Time: Swann's Way

ByMarcel Proust

In Search of Lost Time , is a novel in seven volumes by Marcel Proust (1871–1922). The novel recounts the experiences of the Narrator while growing up, participating in society, falling in love, and learning about art. Swann's Way is the first of seven volumes. The Narrator begins by noting, "For a long time, I went to bed early." He comments on the way sleep seems to alter one's surroundings, and the way Habit makes one indifferent to them. He remembers being in his room in the family's country home in Combray, while downstairs his parents entertain their friend Charles Swann, an elegant man of Jewish origin with strong ties to society .
