Remembrance: Marcel Proust #38

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“In reality
every reader is,
while he is reading,
the reader of his own self.
The writer’s work
is merely a kind
of optical instrument
which he offers
to the reader
to enable him
to discern what,
without this book,
he would perhaps
never have perceived
in himself.”
― Marcel Proust
