Un amore di Swann è una sorta di "romanzo nel romanzo": si inserisce come un lungo flash back nella prima delle sette parti di "Alla ricerca del tempo perduto", rievocando la passione travolgente, dolorosa ed esclusiva di Charles Swann - alter ego dell'io narrante - per la bella Odette de Grécy, enigmatica demi-mondaine, sospesa tra pretese di raffinatezza e freddo opportunismo. Raffinato esteta, al tempo stesso seducente e sterile, Swann sposa Odette quando ormai non l'ama più. Maestro dell'introspezione psicologica, Proust disegna la parabola del loro tormentato rapporto dalla cieca infatuazione al graduale spegnimento, facendo di questo amore la storia paradigmatica di qualsiasi amore. Vero o presunto che sia, perché, come osserva il filosofo Ortega y Gasset, in questo excursus "c'è dentro di tutto: punti di sensualità calda, pigmenti paonazzi di sospetto, grigi di abitudine, chiari di stanchezza vitale. L'unica cosa che non c'è è l'amore".

Swann ist hoffnungslos verliebt. Seit er festgestellt hat,
dass die schöne Odette einer Figur in einem Gemälde
Botticellis gleicht, kann er seine Augen nicht mehr von ihr
abwenden. Seine Aufmerksamkeit schmeichelt ihr zunächst,
und sie führt ihn in Verdurins Salon ein. Doch nach und
nach verliert sie das Interesse an Swann, der ihr aber nur
noch um so bedingungsloser verfällt. Als er jedoch eines
Tages mit ihrer Untreue konfrontiert wird und feststellen
muss, dass Odette eigentlich eine Dame aus der Halbwelt von
zweifelhaftem Ruf ist, scheint er aus einem bösen Traum zu
erwachen und erkennt mit einem Mal, dass er Jahre seines
Lebens mit der Liebe zu einer Frau verbracht hat, die es
nicht wert war, so vergöttert zu werden. "Eine Liebe
Swanns" (1913) ist eine psychologische Studie, die Prousts
Meisterschaft verrät, feinste Nuancen des Seelenlebens in ( )
