Swann in Love
Oxford World’s Classics
Swann in Love is the story of Charles Swann and his infatuation with Odette de Crecy and the revealing psychological turmoil his relations with her involves. A study in jealousy and the indirections of desire; it is here that Proust first works through his devastating theory of love.
