Redintegration - Proust


The great literary example of redintegration is Marcel Proust's novel Remembrance of Things Past. The conceit is that the entire seven-volume novel consists of the memories triggered by the taste of a madeleine soaked in lime tea. "I had recognized the taste of the crumb of madeleine soaked in her concoction of lime-flowers which my aunt used to give to me. Immediately the old grey house upon the street, where her room was, rose up like the scenery of a theatre to attach itself to the little pavilion, opening on to the garden, which had been built out behind it for my parents", ... for seven volumes. (See List of longest novels.)

    My consolation is to think of the women I have known, now that there is no longer such thing as elegance.

    —Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    The human plagiarism which is most difficult to avoid, for individuals ... is the plagiarism of ourself.
