The first volume of Marcel Proust's seven-part masterpiece In Search of Lost Time, Swann's Way introduces the novel's major themes and its narrator, then turns its focus to Charles Swann, a wealthy connoisseur who moves in high-society circles in nineteenth-century Paris and a victim of an agonizing romance.
