De Combray à Rio de Janeiro : lectures et appropriations brésiliennes de Marcel Proust (1919-1958)

Abstract : In 1919, Marcel Proust won the Goncourt Prize for In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower. In addition to elevating the author’s profile in France, the prestigious award made Proust known internationally overnight, transmitting his name to the four corners of the world. It is in that context that Proust’s work arrived in Brazil, in the original French, and that the author was first reported on in the Rio de Janeiro press. After an introduction focusing on the theories of cultural transfer, the aesthetics of the reception and death of the author, this article analyzes the spread, reaction to, and translation of Marcel Proust’s work in Brazil, from the moment it arrived in the country to the translation of the final volume of In Search of Lost Time.
