Celebrating Marcel Proust's À La Recherche du Temps Perdu centenary, we have gone back to Jacqueline Rose's discussion of her book Proust Among the Nations – from Dreyfus to the Middle East at JBW 2012

Sunday, 26 February 2012

In her book, Proust Among the Nations – from Dreyfus to the Middle East, Jacqueline Rose takes her far-reaching and often controversial analysis of the Middle East conflict into the heart of Europe. Offering a radical re-reading of the Dreyfus Affair through the lens of Marcel Proust, in dialogue with Sigmund Freud, she traces the shifting dynamic of memory and identity across the crucial and ongoing cultural links between Europe and Palestine.
