L'impact de la musique sur la psychologie de Charles Swann et du narrateur dans "Un amour de Swann" de M. Proust


The musical vision crystallized in Marcel Proust's novel “Love for Swan” is closely related to the narrator’s personal experience, whose musical concept reflects Charles Swan's perceptions of this subject, yet each of them maintains their own insights. Indeed, he notes that the Sonnet “Vantoy” creates a temporary but profound feeling of happiness and suffering within the emotional vision of Charles Swann, as does the emotions arising from his love affair with Odette; So, after an evening spent with the Saint Overture family, Swan realizes the sonnet's self that the hopes for happiness towards Odette could not be fulfilled. But Swan learned no lessons from his knowledge of the "Vantoy" sonnet; Because he did not search for the nature of its influence on his personal feelings, and moreover, his superficial view of things was satisfied with returning the origin of the Sonnet to another world, a world that only the greatest artists can access to capture its supernatural beings. So Swan can be considered one of the art hobbyists who only seek a sense of pleasure in the arts, as a result of their loss of intellectual and moral qualifications. On the other hand, the narrator believes that music constitutes a field of contemplation and not only pleasure, as he sees that it is in harmony with some kind of spiritual truths, so he gives it certain symbols in order to confirm its credibility. Consequently, one imagines listening to music as if he is swimming in a space of perfumes and colors, while most of Swan's comparisons between music and other elements are determined in seeing the sonnet as a human being without being able to go with his imagination any further. In addition to this, the narrator is aware that the sonnet possesses its own identity that can only be explained by its relationship to the spiritual climate in which its author lives and not across completely vague worlds, and in any case, it should be noted that the experience of Swan and the narrator confirms the coherent relationship between the composer and human feelings.
