Love and Place

Been working for a while on an essay which deals with love and place (starting from a simple question, Can you go back to a place you shared?) and ends up in two quick moves (no idea why) at Proust from Le Grand Mealunes (Alain Fournier mooning about Paris after Yvonne “A quoi bonne?” de Quieverecourt) and The French Lieutentant's Woman. Much of it switches to notions of the screenplay, because I have a bit of an obsession with Pinter's The Proust Screenplay and visualisation in general. Then: the notion that memory of a place and the associated emotions can never be faithfully transcribed into text, but film often get closer simply because it uses use the same 'format'. Pinter did the screenplay for TFLW.

Hoping to chivvy myself up to posting something even if not quite right, by this here, because I want some feedback on novels and films which concentrate on love and place.

Ought also to say how by discovering the post The Intermittancies of the Heart in Involuntary Memory while in the middle of it that I got that extra filip to carry on. Thanks transientme, whoever you are.
