Sodom and Gomorrah opens a new phase of In Search of Lost Time. While watching the pollination of the Duchess de Guermantes’s orchid, the narrator secretly observes a sexual encounter between two men. “Flower and plant have no conscious will,” Samuel Beckett wrote of Proust’s representation of sexuality. “They are shameless, exposing their genitals.

And so in a sense are Proust’s men and women . . . shameless. There is no question of right and wrong.” 


About the Author

Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust (French: [maʁsɛl pʁust]; 10 July 1871 – 18 November 1922) was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental novel À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time; earlier translated as Remembrance of Things Past). He is considered by many to be one of the greatest authors of all time.

The novel was published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927. Proust's novels continue in their influence on contemporary culture and film with notable film productions including Time Regained featuring John Malkovich and Swann's Way featuring Jeremy Irons.
