Richard Robinson: "Proustian Memory"

The Irish Proust

Richard Robinson (Swansea University), "'Real without Being Actual, Ideal without Being Abstract’: Proustian Memory and John McGahern’s Memoir”.

The Irish Proust was a two-day conference which took place in October 2022 and brought together scholars and writers from Ireland, France, the UK, and the US to explore the French novelist’s influence on Irish literature as well as Irish themes within his writing. By delving into what is Irish within Proust and Proustian within Irish letters, ‘The Irish Proust’ managed to shed new light on the greatest French novel of the twentieth century and its far-reaching cultural significance. Speakers included Martina Evans, Carlo Gebler, Elisabeth Ladenson, Nathalie Mauriac Dyer, and Barry McCrea.
