THE PROMISE OF MEMORY
Book Description:

We once believed in the power of Proust’s madeleine and Wordsworth’s boyhood memories—before literary culture began to defer to Freud’s questioning of adult memories of childhood. In this first sustained look at childhood memories as depicted in literature, Lorna Martens reveals how much we may have lost by turning our attention the other way.
