Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust, known as Marcel Proust, was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental novel In Search of Lost Time. In Search of Lost Time follows the narrator's recollections of childhood and experiences into adulthood during the late 19th century to early 20th century aristocratic France, while reflecting on the loss of time and lack of meaning to the world. Proust continued to work on it until his final illness in the autumn of 1922 forced him to break off. The last three of the seven volumes contain oversights and fragmentary or unpolished passages, as they existed only in draft form at the death of the author; the publication of these parts was overseen by his brother Robert. Time Regained, also translated as Finding Time Again and The Past Recaptured, is the final volume in Proust's novel. Much of the final volume was written at the same time as Swann's Way, but was revised and expanded. This volume includes a noteworthy episode describing Paris during the First World War. Proust's narrator returns to Paris. He reflects on time, reality, jealousy, artistic creation, and the raw material for literature-his past life. The novel In Search of Lost Time had great influence on twentieth-century literature; some writers have sought to emulate it, others to parody it.
