New York Times: Proust Fans Eagerly Await Trove of Letters Going Online

New York Times: Proust Fans Eagerly Await Trove of Letters Going Online. “Some 6,000 letters written by [Marcel] Proust, many of which had been collected and published by the scholar Philip Kolb of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will be put online and made available free to scholars and general readers alike. (Professor Kolb died in 1992.) The first tranche of the letters, several hundred related to World War I, is expected to be published online by Nov. 11, 2018, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the end of the war, according to Grenoble Alpes University, one of the French institutions collaborating on the project.”
