This chapter takes a look at Proust's anachronisms in Michelangelo and Shakespeare's sonnets. It first studies Michelangelo's sonnets, which follow Proust's fourth instance of anachronism. It then looks at Shakespeare's preoccupation with time, which deals with a sense of crisis. It also looks at one of Shakespeare's characters, Falstaff, a figure who will not be contained.
