Being Contemporary

Deborah Jenson

Liverpool University Press

‘Adrien and Marcel Proust: Fathering Neurasthenic Memory’, written by Deborah Jenson, offers a reinvestment in Proust and foregrounds ideas of Proust as a memory icon by reading the ‘fictions of the son’ against the ‘theories of the father.’ In refiguring Marcel Proust as a ‘memory patient,’ Jenson argues that the author’s ‘singular attention to … the complex storage and retrieval engineering of memory processes’ was developed through his relationship to his father, a theorist of neurasthenic memory.
