24 On the one hand, there is a succession of selves that come into being and pass away as Marcel changes over time. This alteration is intrinsic to temporal being and accounts for why “today’s ‘moi’ cannot predict tomorrow’s, nor even always remember that of yesterday” (105). On the other hand, the successive selves do not simply disappear but are sedimented as a multiplicity of selves in the same body. As a result, we are liable to change not only with regard to the emergence of future selves but also with regard to the resurgence of past selves.
Involuntary memory is “extra-temporal” not because it transcends time (as Marcel sometimes claims) but because it intensifies the experience of time. Consider the basic structure of involuntary memory. The repetition of an identical sensation in the past and the present allows for a bridge between the two, but the repetition does not abolish the temporal difference. On the contrary, it underlines it. According to Marcel’s own description, the present sensation of an absent past “allowed my being to obtain, to isolate, to immobilize—for the duration of a flash of lightning— the one thing it never apprehends: a bit of time in its pure state [un peu de temps à l’état pur]” (6:180/4:451).
My ambition is thus not only to elucidate theoretical insights in the writings of Proust, Woolf, and Nabokov; it is also to show how they practice a chronolibidinal aesthetics, which depends on the attachment to mortal life and engages the pathos of survival in the experience of the reader. Such a chronolibidinal aesthetics was already identified by Socrates in his analysis of Homer. According to Socrates, the affective power of aesthetic representation depends on a libidinal investment in the fate of mortal life.
