Proust posts in Moleskine Modality

Recommend using edit > find > type in ‘Proust’ > select highlight all. You can run through the scroll in Moleskine Modality at a rate of knots to find what you might be interested in.

This will also highlight in yellow the word Proust in the blogroll. There is a selection of Proust related links in the ‘I read’ category: English for the non-English must be very trying when this could be the present or the past tense: while orally/aurally it is perfectly clear which tense it is.

If any of the blogroll links are dead, you can at least put the relevant title or phrase back into a search engine to try to find the article. Checked one link –Aesthetics of the Windshield: Proust and the modern Rhetoric of Speed which was as dead as the proverbial dead parrot in the Monty Python dead parrot sketch(though this one may work). How Proust viewed the technology of the time is a theme I cannot tire of. There are a few others :

From The Cambridge Companion to Proust is available as a pdf. Chapter 1 : From the Belle Epoch to the First World War: the social panorama, under the under the sub-heading Speed of Change, page 14.

Theories of Relativity by William C. Carter

Between Philosophy and Poetry: Writing, Rhythm, History

By Massimo Verdicchio, Robert Burch

This is a few pages in a Google abstract (fascimile) which deals with speed: dealing with the bicycle, trains, the car, cinematograph, etc.
