Science and Structure in Proust's

Nicola Luckhurst

Oxford University Press

The trajectory described by the narrative of souffrance moves from charged moments of painful revelation into the negative capability of Albertine dispartue. Paradoxically, this most maxim-laden, theory-laden of texts is also the one in which meaning as such drains away, in which significance is lost. The moralistic discourse becomes prominent at this point because it has become both the substance, the action of the text, and its commentary.

Keywords:   souffrance, Albertine dispartue, Proustian laws, substance, commentary
