This poem was previously published in Arete´ — the Arts Tri-Quarterly, Winter 1999. From the cover: “Because it takes commemoration seriously, Craig Raine’s new long poem, ‘A la recherche du temps perdu’, extends the boundaries of the elegy. It tries to restore the lost person — in all her beauty, her difficulty, her charm, her formidable complexity, her sexuality, in all her reality. Stendhal said of history that all the truth and all the pleasure lie in the details. Raine shows us that love, too, is in the detail.”
