    Afterwards, at dinner, he watches Norpois, who is extremely diplomatic and correct at all times, expound on society and art. Oriane, Duchesse de Guermantes: The toast of Paris high society. In so doing he transformed it into one of the most profound achievements of the human imagination. Several months later, Saint-Loup, now single, convinces the Narrator to ask out the Stermaria daughter, newly divorced. Years later, again in Paris, the Narrator goes to a party at the house of the Prince de Guermantes. Albertine disappears at the beginning of The Fugitive, leaving Marcel to suffer over her lesbian connections and, soon afterwards, the shock of her sudden death.

    One guest is Odette de Crecy, a former courtesanwho has met Swann and invites him to the group. She served as partial inspiration for the character of Odette. Now on the dark street, the Narrator encounters Charlus, who has completely surrendered to his impulses. Proust sets forth a theory of art in which we are all capable of producing art, if by this we mean taking the experiences of life and transforming them in a way that shows understanding and maturity.

    On the way he sees Charlus, now a mere shell of his former self, being helped by Jupien. Trouble with finding a publisher, as well as a gradually changing conception of his novel, led Proust to shift work to a substantially different project that still contained many of the same themes and elements. He writes an indifferent letter to Gilberte, and reviews the changing social scene, which now includes Mme Swann's salon centered on Bergotte. Proust attracts, perhaps, too much piety; certainly the Proust cult is always an enemy of Proust the writer. Critics have often observed that while the character of the narrator is ostensibly heterosexual, Proust intimates that the narrator is a closeted homosexual.

Charlus is captivated by the two young sons of M. The Narrator pieces together that Saint-Loup had visited Jupien's brothel, and ponders what might have been had he lived. What did the stacked boxes and baskets of our youth represent but the boundless fruitage of that more bucolic age of the American world, and what was after all of so strong an assault as the rankness of such a harvest?
