Nostalgic love can only survive in a long- distance relationship. A cinematic image of nostalgia is a double exposure, or a superimposition of two images—of home and abroad, of past and present, of dream and everyday life.

The moment we try to force it into a single image, it breaks the frame or burns the surface.

Swann's Way by Marcel Proust

Nostalgia accompanies the concept of Bergsonian time, i. As I have discussed before, Bergsonian time follows no linear path, but it encumbers all of Time — past, present, future — into a continuity. Nostalgia similarly does the same thing. As Boym further explains, Bakshi 7 of 12 nostalgia appears to be a longing for a place but is actually a yearning for a different time—the time of our childhood, the slower rhythms of our dreams.

In a broader sense, nostalgia is a rebellion against the modern idea of time, the time of history and progress. The nostalgic desires to obliterate history and turn it into private or collective mythology, to revisit time as space, refusing to surrender to the irreversibility of time that plagues the human condition.

Time out of time, not encumbered by appointment books… [Again] nostalgia, in my view, is not always retrospective; it can be prospective as well. The fantasies of the past determined by the needs of the present have a direct impact on the realities of the future. Considering the future makes us take responsibility for our nostalgic tales.

Unlike melancholia, which confines itself to the planes of individual consciousness, nostalgia is about the relationship between individual biography and the biography of groups or nations, between personal and collective memory.

While futuristic utopias might be out of fashion, nostalgia itself has a utopian dimension, only it is no longer directed toward the future. Sometimes it is not directed toward the past either, but rather sideways.

The nostalgic feels stifled within the conventional confines of time and space. Proust evokes nostalgia in a similar fashion, almost as if to defy the modern notion of temporality. Neurologists J.

Bogousslavsky and O. Involuntary memory is the best known of these topics. No sooner had the warm liquid, and the crumbs with it, touched my palate than a shudder ran through my whole body, and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary changes that were taking place.

An exquisite pleasure had invaded my senses, but individual, detached, with no suggestion of its origin. And at once the vicissitudes of Bakshi 9 of 12 life had become indifferent to me, its disasters innocuous, its brevity illusory — this new sensation having had on me the effect which love has of filling me with a precious essence; or rather this essence was not in me, it was myself.

I had ceased now to feel mediocre, accidental, mortal.

It is time to stop; the potion is losing its magic. The feeling of melancholy at remembering the past amalgamates the disparate experience of time and space into one singular, nonlinear dimension.

However, nostalgia does not only evoke melancholia but also a sense of Freudian Uncanny. Ultimately Freud defines uncanny as the class of frightening things that leads us back to what is known and familiar. Some one had had the happy idea of giving me, to distract me on evenings when I seemed abnormally wretched, a magic lantern, which used to be set on top of my lamp while we waited for dinner-time to come: in the manner of the master- builders and glass-painters of gothic days it substituted for the opaqueness of my walls an impalpable iridescence, supernatural phenomena of many colours, in which legends were depicted, as on a shifting and transitory window.

But my sorrows were only increased, because this change of lighting destroyed, as nothing else could have done, the customary impression I had formed of my room, thanks to which the room Bakshi 11 of 12 itself, but for the torture of having to go to bed in it, had become quite endurable. For now I no longer recognised it, and I became uneasy, as though I were in a room in some hotel or furnished lodging, in a place where I had just arrived, by train, for the first time.

The conventional concept of time is considered as the enemy in the novel; Proust divulges into various experiments of temporal realities mainly to transcend the physical time and experience a metaphysical time of memories and nostalgia, and to find insight from those experiences while he himself is in the present fleeting moment.

Capturing time — not just the distant past but also the escaping uncaptured present moments — is the subject of his lament as is his Bergsonian ideal. Bakshi 12 of 12 Works Cited: Bergson, Henri. Leon Jacobson. New York: Bobbs, When I reflected that their trees -- pear trees, apple trees, tamarisks -- would outlive me, I seemed to be receiving from them a silent counsel to set myself to work at last, before the hour of eternal rest had yet struck.

IV An effect of Jealousy As I drained a final glass, I gazed at a rosette painted on the white wall, and focused on it the pleasure that I felt. It alone in the world had any existence for me; I pursued it, touched it and lost it by turns with my wavering glance, and felt indifferent to the future, contenting myself with my rosette like a butterfly circling about another, stationary butterfly with which it is about to end its life in an act of supreme consummation.

IV On Brichot He talked with the same irritating fluency, but his words no longer struck a chord, having to overcome a hostile silence or disagreeable echoes; what had changed was not what he said, but the acoustics of the room and the attitude of the audience. IV Alone She had suddenly handed back to me the thoughts, the griefs which, from the days of my infancy, I had entrusted for all time to her keeping. She was not yet dead.

I was already alone. And even those allusions which she had made III Memory Every fresh glimpse is a sort of rectification, which brings us back to what we, in fact, saw. II The woman we love Our intuitive radiography pierces them, and the images which it brings back, far from being those of a particular face, present rather the joyless universality of a skeleton.

II Alas! One had only to see, by the side of any of those girls, her mother or her aunt, to realise the distance over which, obeying the internal gravitation of a type that was generally frightful, these features would have travelled in less than thirty years, until the hour when the face, having sunk altogether below the horizon, catches the light no more.

II For what people have once done II During that ridiculous age In a world thronged with monsters and with gods, we know little peace of mind. II What the milk-girl brought I felt on seeing her that desire to live which is reborn in us whenever we become conscious anew of beauty and of happiness.

II On leaving home It was not for the first time that I felt that those who love and those who enjoy are not always the same.

II Courtesan life The things that one sees in the house of a respectable woman The culminating point of her day is not the moment in which she dresses herself for society, but that in which she undresses herself for a man. She must be as elegant in her dressing-gown, in her night-dress, as in her outdoor attire.

Swann's Way (In Search of Lost Time, #1)

Il en est ainsi du Temps dans la vie. The second suspicion, nothing more, really, than a variant of the first, was that I was not situated somewhere outside of Time, but was subject to its laws, just like people in novels who, for that reason, used to depress me when I read of their lives, down at Combray, in the fastness of my wicker chair. In theory, one is aware that the earth revolves, but in practice one does not perceive it, the ground upon which one treads seems not to move, and one can live undisturbed.

And to make its flight perceptible novelists are obliged, by wildly accelerating the beat of the pendulum, to transport the reader in a couple of minutes over ten, or twenty, or even thirty years.

At the top of one page we have left a lover full of hope; at the foot of the next we meet him again, a bowed old man of eighty, painfully dragging himself on his daily walk about the courtyard of an almshouse, scarcely replying to what is said to him, oblivious of the past.Legrandin, declared arch-enemy of snobbery, who cuts Marcel and his family when he is in the company of grander folk; the composer M.

Nearly midnight.

I had forgotten that event during my sleep; I remembered it again immediately I had succeeded in making myself wake up to escape my great-uncle's fingers; still, as a measure of precaution, I would bury the whole of my head in the pillow before returning to the world of dreams. The feeling of melancholy at remembering the past amalgamates the disparate experience of time and space into one singular, nonlinear dimension.

Bakshi 4 of 12 When a man is asleep, he has in a circle round him the chain of the hours, the sequence of the years, the order of the heavenly host. I would ask myself what o'clock it could be; I could hear the whistling of trains, which, now nearer and now farther off, punctuating the distance like the note of a bird in a forest, shewed me in perspective the deserted countryside through which a traveller would be hurrying towards the nearest station: the path that he followed being fixed for ever in his memory by the general excitement due to being in a strange place, to doing unusual things, to the last words of conversation, to farewells exchanged beneath an unfamiliar lamp which echoed still in his ears amid the silence of the night; and to the delightful prospect of being once again at home.
