Is it just that we are dweebs or that we write dweeby books as well? I love them just as much as my children do. He said Proust even did coitus. So we have dicks dripping, twats throbbing, breasts heaving, clitorises undulating! This is pure esprit gaulois. Charlus decides to up the book ante and tries to send out for a second book for Marcel without success. I love the freaky french films.
Marcel our narrator did most of his constant reading out where others could see him in a little wicker gazebo in the garden area. Basin, the duc de Guermantes, is called a big old cock rooster who continues to live the life of a young man. Proust re English, his bro Robert, Bloch and spoken accents. I would have liked Kechiche to come closer, with more tenderness, and I would have liked him to imagine other endings, political and personal. Explicit sex scenes from mainstream movies and celebrities Uhh.
MARCEL THE MENACE: Marcel Proust's childhood sex fantasy novel
Let me hasten to add: whether that man succeeds in portraying that perspective in an ethically satisfying way is another matter entirely, and most such efforts fail in one way or another. Chez Proust, such a global image is probably not mean to be taken lightly. Well, Proust was famous for his assimilationist spirit, for his desire to hide the fact that he had German Jewish ancestors. Marcel suggests however that Odette was the vane one about her age and that Gilberte was the one with long hair past the age of the first haircut. I think this must have been where and how gay came to equal homosexual. Many of the salons were becoming mostly males of artistic bend.
Temps perdu is universally accepted as autobiographical fiction. The sex with Gilberte happened just before the asthma attack. Sure we can appreciate the work of the despicable as long as their despicable acts do not affect us. What if he used to hit women? I came to fiction first, but found difficulty in the mechanics of storytelling, and lacked the stamina and wherewithal to develop much fruitfully, so I turned to poetry, which requires less sustained attention over the long haul; each poem can be worked on fairly independently.
