Quand le soleil baissait avec la mer devant soi. 398–9) [Looking at the sea (at this hour it had almost the appearance of the sea) at the end of the road . . Jean suddenly remembered. He saw it before him as the very sea he once had known, and felt its charm. In a ﬂash, that life in Brittany which he had thought useless and unusable, appeared before his eyes in all its charm and beauty . . ]7 Then he wonders about the nature of the extraordinary phenomenon he is experiencing and sees that what the poet needs to feed his imagination is memory experienced in the present, containing both the past and now.
Proust cites Ruskin’s passage on this ‘petite ﬁgure’: . . the fellow is vexed and puzzled in his malice; and his hand is pressed hard on his cheek bone, and the ﬂesh of the cheek is wrinkled under the eye by the pressure . . considering it as a mere ﬁlling of an interstice on the outside of a cathedral gate, and as one of more than three hundred . . it proves very noble vitality in the art of the time. (viii, 217) As he had done with the Vierge Dorée, Proust elaborates these few lines into a narrative of several pages, weaving around the small kernel of Ruskin’s text intricate layerings of his own impressions.
In the ‘Post-Scriptum’, Proust gives a brief record of another of his Ruskinian pilgrimages of 1900, the one he made to Venice. Here he presents a different version of reading a cathedral when he describes his own reactions to reading Ruskin’s The Stones of Venice inside St Mark’s Church: . . l’émotion que j’éprouvais à lire là cette page . . était très grande et n’était pourtant peut-être pas très pure. Comme la joie de voir les belles ﬁgures mystérieuses s’augmentait, mais s’altérait du plaisir en quelque sorte d’érudition que j’éprouvais à comprendre les textes apparus en lettres byzantines à coté de leurs fronts nimbés, de même la beauté des images de Ruskin était avivée et corrompue par l’orgueil de se référer au texte sacré.
