Example text

Proust is all names and all time. 29). Deleuze would, of course, dispute that Proust’s principal concern is with time and memory. While acknowledging the participation of temporal structures in the interpretation of signs, he states in Proust et les signes that: L’essentiel, dans la Recherche, ce n’est pas la mémoire et le temps, mais le signe et la vérité. L’essentiel n’est pas de se souvenir, mais d’apprendre. 4 [The essential thing, in the Search, is not memory and time, but sign and truth.

While acknowledging the participation of temporal structures in the interpretation of signs, he states in Proust et les signes that: L’essentiel, dans la Recherche, ce n’est pas la mémoire et le temps, mais le signe et la vérité. L’essentiel n’est pas de se souvenir, mais d’apprendre. 4 [The essential thing, in the Search, is not memory and time, but sign and truth. The essential thing is not to remember, but to learn. For memory serves only as a faculty capable of interpreting certain signs; time serves only as the material or type of such and such a truth].

But his explanations are experimental and not demonstrative. 87). At the time of writing his Proust, this was an important idea for Beckett. While preparing the lectures on French literature which he was to give at Trinity College Dublin from Autumn 1930 onwards, Beckett was immersing himself in a kind of literary pathfinding which was to have an impact on both his teaching and his own writing. Using the resource of the detailed lecture notes9 on Gide and Racine taken in 1931 by Rachel Burrows, one of Beckett’s students, it is possible to trace that Beckett had taken careful account of Gide’s collection of pieces on Dostoievski, and, in particular, Gide’s ‘allocution lue au Vieux-Colombier’, given in 1921, on the occasion of the centenary of Dostoievski’s birth.
