Proust & Psychoanalysis: 

A conversation between Jane Haynes and Christopher Prendergast


Jane Haynes met Christopher Prendergast after they were both invited to speak by the Royal Society of Literature on ‘What’s so great about Proust’ in 2010. They have continued a dialogue ever since. Jane’s interest in Proust was a later-life discovery, having spent most of it imagining him to be a bore. Regrettably, she has only read Proust in translation. Now he exists for Jane – along with RD Laing, Bowlby and Shakespeare – as a welcome internal consultant. Christopher Prendergast is a leading Proust scholar, the general editor of the 2002 Penguin translation of Proust’s A la recherche du temps perdu.


7.30pm on Thursday 11 April 2019 at The October Gallery, 24 Old Gloucester Street, LONDON WC1N 3AL
