To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first book in Marcel Proust‘s In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu) series, the Morgan Library & Museum has organized an exhibit called “Marcel Proust and Swann’s Way.”
The French novelist began his famous series with Swann’s Way (Du côté de chez Swann) in 1913. You can download a free copy of Swann’s Way at Project Gutenberg.
Some of the items that will be on view include some of the author’s notebooks, galley-proofs and letters. The exhibit is set to run from February 15, 2013 until April 28, 2013. Have you ever attempted to read this series?
