Chapter 1: Life with Albertine

10:12

I rang for Francoise. I opened the Figaro.

11:17

Among the reasons which led Mamma to write me a daily letter…

It was certainly not, as I was well aware…

9:39

It did not occur to me that the apathy that was indicated…

7:50

Francoise came in to light the fire…

12:05

The decline of day plunging me back by an act of memory…

8:24

Of all the outdoor and indoor gowns that Mme. de Guermantes…

6:38

If there was no affectation, no desire to fabricate…

10:04

Mme. de Guermantes assured me that…

7:11

'Good grate-ious, my dear Oriane,' replied Breaute…

6:52

As I endeavoured as far as possible to leave the Duchess…

10:39

We may be certain that Morel, relying on the influence…

10:44

The reader may remember that Morel had once told the Baron…

10:20

I shall set apart from the other days on which I lingered…

9:19

As I listened to Albertine's footsteps…

7:03

At once my suspicion revived…

7:09

Albertine took a far keener interest…

7:56

Distressing as the change may have been to us…

8:52

Between the two Balbec scenes…

11:11

It is I suppose comprehensible that the letters…

10:12

Sometimes I put out the light before she came in.

9:45

Before Albertine obeyed and allowed me to take off her shoes…

10:30

Life has in fact suddenly acquired, in his eyes…

9:32

How many persons, cities, roads does not jealousy make us…

10:33

Often, in the case of these furtive or sidelong glances…

9:49

Generally speaking, love has not as its object a human body…

9:40

When, of her own accord, she swears to us…

9:50

Albertine went to take off her things…

10:16

What is remarkable is that, a few days before this dispute…

9:30

I was now at liberty to go out with Albertine…

11:17

I really believe that I came near that day…

11:31

But there were certain evenings also…

8:29

On the morrow of that evening when Albertine had told me…

9:40

Francoise brought in the Figaro.

10:13

And often an extra hour of sleep is a paralytic stroke…

8:57

In these various forms of sleep, as likewise in music…

9:36

Perhaps the future was not destined to be the same…

7:22

In any event, I was very glad that Andree was to accompany…

10:01

As I do not believe that jealousy can revive a dead love…

12:41

Of a laundry girl, on a Sunday…

10:23

Between the shopgirl, the laundress busy with her iron…

11:06

Of course, I was still at the first stage of enlightenment…

10:26

Certainly at such moments she was not at all the same…

11:51

I urged Francoise, when she had got Albertine out of the hall…

9:43

The frocks that I had bought for her…

9:08

But notwithstanding the richness of these works…

6:56

For some reason or other the course of my musings…

7:07

Gradually my agitation subsided.

10:53

As one does on the eve of a premature death…

7:39

The disappointment that I had felt with the women…

11:39

At our feet, our parallel shadows, where they approached…

10:30

I did not question Gisele.

9:41

Every person whom we love, indeed to a certain extent…

10:30

He consulted doctors who, flattered at being called…

7:14

He repeated to himself…

8:18

The evidence of the senses is also an operation…

7:54

Chapter 2

10:28

Notwithstanding the change in Morel's point of view…

10:54

From this point of view, if one is not 'somebody'…

9:41

But if the drawing-room seemed to him superior…

11:03

Making a pretence of not seeing the seedy individual…

11:28

'Have you seen him lately?' I asked M. de Charlus…

8:15

M. de Charlus had never in his life been anything but…

8:52

As for young men in general, M. de Charlus found…

8:47

M. de Charlus, who had long been acquainted with Bergotte…

11:08

Just as we were about to ring the bell…

10:00

Meanwhile Mme. Verdurin was busily engaged with Cottard…

10:34

These exclusions were not always founded upon…

9:57

Nobody will accuse the Dreyfus case…

10:05

If Mme. Verdurin had not been genuinely unaffected…

11:02

M. de Charlus took Morel aside…

6:10

What ruined M. de Charlus that evening was the ill-breeding…

9:35

Mme. Verdurin sat in a place apart…

9:22

But very soon, the triumphant motive of the bells…

8:28

Vinteuil had been dead for many years…

8:00

The lost country composers do not actually remember…

10:11

This question seemed to me all the more important…

8:57

Anyhow, the apparent contrast, that profound union…

10:22

Nor indeed was M. de Charlus content with leaving…

7:06

She intended, on the morning after the party…

7:24

The remainder of M. de Charlus's guests…

10:16

In calling her 'the Mole' (as for that matter…)

10:02

'I intended to send you a note to-morrow by a messenger…'

10:51

This said, he did not hesitate to commit it…

9:28

'Come with us all the same,' said the Baron…

7:30

I expressed to M. de Charlus my regret…

11:01

'Forgive me if I return to the subject,' I said quickly…

7:14

'You wish to meet Mlle Vinteuil,' said Brichot…

7:51

So it is that we see men of the world…

10:10

All of a sudden Brichot, who was still suffering…

9:56

I could see that M. de Charlus was about to tell us…

10:30

As cowardly still as I had been long ago…

8:40

But we have looked too far ahead…

9:53

Mme. Verdurin was overwhelmed with the joy of an old mistress…

12:21

While M. de Charlus, rendered speechless by Morel's words…

7:43

Extremes, however, meet, since the noble man…

7:27

To turn back to the Verdurin's party…

8:51

Chapter 3

9:39

We had now reached my door.

9:44

But I was preoccupied with the thought of Mlle Vinteuil…

9:27

I did not know what to say, not wishing to appear astonished…

8:52

Once again I had to be careful not to keep…

10:25

'My little Albertine,' I said to her in a gentle voice…

8:18

But the situation was entirely different for several reasons…

7:14

If I analyse my feelings by this hypothesis…

7:18

My serfdom, of which I had already been conscious…

9:34

Tonight I thought that, among the other reasons…

8:09

I had tears in my eyes…

9:02

I should have been wrong in being delighted…

5:11

It was so late that, in the morning, I warned Francoise…

11:18

Albertine no more said to me after this midnight scene…

9:42

If Albertine's object was to restore my peace of mind…

9:22

'We shall have to begin to think soon…'

6:17

I was so far convinced that it was absurd…

9:51

Vinteuil's phrases made me think of the 'little phrase'…

9:39

But I can at least assume that Baudelaire is not sincere.

6:25

It was not, however, his music alone that Albertine played me…

9:46

She spoke to me also of the excursions that she had made…

8:37

Meanwhile winter was at an end…

9:32

The first, the consoling feature was that habit…

12:39

In the course of the day, Francoise had let fall in my hearing…

10:28

This presentiment which she seemed to be expressing…

11:01

That day and the next we went out together…

9:17

We stopped at a big pastrycook's…

8:23

We returned home very late one evening…

6:30

But all of a sudden the scene changed…
