Jean Santeuil as the \roman de jeunesse\" of Marcel Proust and an early sketch of episodic events themes characters and settings offers an interesting and informative opportunity to study the genesis of literary motifs settings and dramatization of character and event which appear in their state of finished evolution saliency of detail theme and qualities of characterization in A la recherche du temps perdu. Jean Santeuil represents a youthful literary effort and unites rudimentary fragments of character presentation brief chapters of plot and adventure often without sequence or continuity in theme which in its unfinished and incomplete state affords insight into this first sketch of Proust's philosophical and literary themes. It gives an interesting comparison between his earliest thought and ideas of subject and the later mature and polished work of A la recherche du temps perdu."
