Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on Gilles Deleuze's reading of the works of Marcel Proust. It explains that in the concordance of literary allusions in Deleuze's works, the Proust entry is the longest, and that allusions are present in practically all his books, from Proust and Signs to Essays Critical and Clinical. The chapter examines how Deleuze constructed a philosophical concept of strong reading and suggests that there are six such determinations of this concept.
