About the Author: Marcel Proust

French novelist, best known for his 3000 page masterpiece À la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past or In Search of Lost Time), a pseudo-autobiographical novel told mostly in a stream-of-consciousness style. Born in the first year of the Third Republic, the young Marcel, like his narrator, was a delicate child from a bourgeois family. He was active in Parisian high society during the 80s and 90s, welcomed in the most fashionable and exclusive salons of his day. However, his position there was also one of an outsider, due to his Jewishness and homosexuality. Towards the end of 1890s Proust began to withdraw more and more from society, and although he was never entirely reclusive, as is sometimes made out, he lapsed more completely into his lifelong tendency to sleep during the day and work at night. He was also plagued with severe asthma, which had troubled him intermittently since childhood, and a terror of his own death, especially in case it should come before his novel had been completed. The first volume, after some difficulty finding a publisher, came out in 1913, and Proust continued to work with an almost inhuman dedication on his masterpiece right up until his death in 1922, at the age of 51.
Today he is widely recognised as one of the greatest authors of the 20th Century, and À la recherche du temps perdu as one of the most dazzling and significant works of literature to be written in modern times.

-Celos-, que el propio Proust publicó en 1921 como "Novela inédita y completa" constituye una variante de -A la busca del tiempo perdido-, concretamente del cuarto tomo, que el autor anticipó en parte en esta versión. Una nueva oportunidad de acercarse a Proust y a su obra maestra. La novela maneja magistralmente los tiempos, desde el -tempo lento- del comienzo hasta el clímax final. En palabras de Mauro Armiño, -Celos- se convierte en una pequeña fisura por la que el lector penetra en el mundo de -A la busca del tiempo perdido-, de sus personajes y de los temas clave: amor; celos; deseo; inquietud; angustia... los fantasmas que roen la conciencia de un mundo de apariencias, mientras los protagonistas se retuercen bajo la desgarradura de los celos y el deseo. Las secuencias se multiplican encadenándose como en una película para culminar en la alta noche y su tortura del amor cruelmente insatisfecho; secuencias-escenas, de ritmo rápido, con primeros planos y detalles que insinúan lo que se oculta: de ahí la importancia que Luchino Visconti daba a estos pasajes en su guión cinematográfico de -A la busca del tiempo perdido-.
