Proust's aesthetic

I feel with these gleaned bits and pieces as if I am trying to read Proust from a pile of pages discovered in a rubbish skip which I am laboriously going through, some too torn to read, others with the print smeared, but from which by perseverence a coherent, understandable story is emerging.

* Proust's Aesthetic Analogies: Character and Painting in Swann's Way
Jeffrey Meyers
The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, Vol. 30, No. 3 (Spring, 1972), pp. 377-388

* The Past Recaptured: Marcel Proust's Aesthetic Theory
John Arthur Hogan
Ethics, Vol. 49, No. 2 (Jan., 1939), pp. 187-203

There are a few papers online at The American Society for Aesthetics

Unfortunately not Meyer's.


This, just discovered from the Robert Musil site:

Frederik Tygstrup - The Monstrous Novel - An Essay in Literary History
