    Remembrance of Things Past is the biography not just of the narrator, but of the entire social group in which he lives. This freed Proust to move to Gallimard, where all of the subsequent volumes were published. The famous opening paragraphs of Swann's Way, in which the narrator describes his habit of going to bed early as a child, typify Proust's ability to mine insight from apparently insignificant events. The Modern Library volumes include a handful of endnotes, and alternative versions of some of the novel's famous episodes.

    The Narrator sends him to learn more, and he reports other liaisons with girls. Volume titles: The Way by Swann's in the U.

He recounts a visit from Saint-Loup, who was trying to enlist secretly. He showers Mme Swann with flowers, being almost on better terms with her than with Gilberte. Remembrance of Things Past is the biography not just of the narrator, but of the entire social group in which he lives. Basin, Duc de Guermantes: Oriane's husband and Charlus's brother.
