In an interview given in 1913, Proust described the as-yet-uncompleted 'A la recherche du temps perdu' as a series of 'Romans de l'Inconscient'. This study explores the theme of the unconscious in Proust's great novel, situating it against a backdrop of nineteenth-century models of the mind, and tracing its connections with major metaphoric and thematic networks in the novel. Dreams and spoken language in particular emerge as crucial sites of unconscious mental activity, providing a wealth of material on which one can base a comparative study of Proustian and Freudian models of the mind.
