The splendor of glittering helmets dawn of the great war in proust

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This paper explores the pre-figurations of the Great War in Marcel Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu. Through a set of cross-disciplinary lenses (art history, military theory, anthropology, sociology), the weave of Proust's narrative of Marcel's time in Combray and Doncières before the outbreak of war -A war which was both expected and unimaginable - is explored. Emphasis is placed on the ideology of heroic sacrifice, debates of military theory, homosexuality and fraternity, and the idea of France that structured the imagination of nationalism and war during the Belle Epoque, as reflected in Proust's Recherche.
