However, it forms the part of six series, one of the other works of his titled ‘In Search of Lost Time’ being adapted into a drama film by the name of ‘Time Regained’. This paper thus helps to provide an insight into one of the excerpts taken from the end of Proust’s novel, Combray, and how the analysis tends to describe these other two parts of Swann’s Way. Swann’s Way is a very well written account of the life of Marcel Proust. the first part talks about his early life and his younger self, as well as the experiences that he encounters in the small French town of Combray. The second part of the book talks about his obsession and infatuation towards Odette, and how he tries to woo the woman with all his might and passion, and thus tries to make a place for her in his life through his work by understanding her as his muse, by only ultimately coming to the conclusion, that she was not indeed, his ‘type’. One of the author’s most famous quotes from this very account and interesting tale has been analysed and explained within this paper in order to understand the kind of emotions and feelings that he was going through, and how the same relates to all his narratives as a whole. “For often I have wished to see a person again without realising that it was simply because that person recalled to me a hedge of hawthorns in blossom. and I have been led to believe, and to make someone else believe in an aftermath of affection, by what was no more than an inclination to travel. But by the same qualities, and by their persistence in those of my impressions, today, to which they can find an attachment, the two “ways” give to those impressions a foundation, depth, a dimension lacking from the rest. They invest them, too, with a charm, a significance which is for me alone. When, on a summer evening, the resounding sky growls like a tawny lion, and everyone is complaining of the storm, it is along the “Meseglise way” that my fancy strays alone in ecstasy, inhaling, through the noise of falling rain, the odour of invisible and persistent lilac-trees.” (Proust, Marcel) The beauty of this quote by the author lies in understanding the in depth meaning and analysing the words not by breaking them down, but by absorbing them within oneself. The author has tried to portray his emotions by talking about the mystery that love carries and the fantasy that has been created around this very single emotion with the help of nature and the surroundings that persist in the rest of the world around us. He has tried to depict how an individual might long for someone without realising the fact that he indeed does not long for the other person’s touch or feel. but for the atmosphere that he is put into while being on the search for that significant other who might end up meaning nothing at all. Therefore, meeting someone includes the surroundings as well as the atmosphere that might be created. Many a times, it might so happen that the setting that has been created with the help of the wind, trees and the whiff of yearn in the air, might be because of a personal emotion and not the aura that the other person might exude. Thus, the author has tried to explain how travelling far and wide distances in order to meet someone might also mean that someone wants to undergo the travel because of the beauty that nature exudes, and not completely in order to finish the rendezvous.
