Sample text

Events are in the 53 ALAIN DE BOTTON past, but the deep understanding of people, of love, and of life that Proust provides is not tied to time. De Botton was inspired to write his book because of this very timelessness in Proust. Final comments Does the seven-volume, million-and-a-quarter-word In Search of Lost Time, considered by many the greatest book of the twentieth century, really have anything to do with self-help? The suggestion that it does has enraged some Proust devotees, because Art is not to be cheapened by suggestions of practical therapeutic value.

Many of the characters in Proust’s writing are bad sufferers, employing 51 ALAIN DE BOTTON defense mechanisms against facing up to their “issues,” making them insufferable people. The good sufferer sees the bitter logic in what he or she is feeling, knowing that matters inevitably lose their emotional intensity, leaving residues of wisdom. The art of living, as Proust understood it, is not about a great lifestyle, but about locating worth and meaning despite your circumstances, rather than through them.

In his last days, writing as “the prisoner,” he sees his life in perspective. His achievements, he realizes, are not as important as the self-knowledge he is now gaining. It dawns on Boethius that his life thus far has been about the power of mastery, or willful self-creation. In the course of the year in prison he replaces the mastery fixation of the adolescent/adult with an appreciation of the universe’s unity and oneness; he transforms himself from grasping politician to wise elder. Comforted by Philosophy, even a death as horrible as his is put into perspective.
