Sodom and Gomorrah: In Search of Lost Time, Volume 4 (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Marcel Proust


Sodom and Gomorrah—now in a great translation by means of John Sturrock—takes up the topic of gay love, female and male, and dwells on how damaging sexual jealousy will be if you undergo it. Proust’s novel is additionally an unforgiving research of either the decadent excessive society of Paris and the increase of a philistine bourgeoisie that's in order to supplanting it. Characters who had lesser roles in past volumes now reappear in a distinct mild and take heart level, particularly Albertine, with whom the narrator believes he's in love, and the insanely haughty Baron de Charlus.
