| Book Description: |
In this book, Austin argues against the traditional critical view that minimizes Proust's practice of pastiche--the imitation of a writer's style--and that considers it a simple exercise of mastering the predecessor. Instead, this work establishes pastiche as a powerful, ubiquitous practice central to Proust's entire oeuvre.
