Swann's Way. In search of lost time

his parents' apartment until after both were dead (Tadié). Proust, who
was homosexual, was one of the first European writers to treat homo-
sexuality at length. His life and family circle changed considerably
between 1900 and 1905. In February 1903, Proust's brother Robert mar-
ried and left the family apartment. His father died in September of the
same year. Finally, and most crushingly, Proust's beloved mother died in
September 1905. In addition to the grief that attended his mother's death,
Proust's life changed due to a very large inheritance he received (in
today's terms, a principal of about $6 million, with a monthly income of
about $15,000). Despite this windfall, his health throughout this period
continued to deteriorate. Proust spent the last three years of his life
largely confined to his cork-lined bedroom, sleeping during the day and
working at night to complete his novel. He died in 1922 and is buried in
the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Source: Wikipedia
