The famous part in 'A La Recherche du Temps Perdu&' by Marcel Proust when he takes a spoonful of madeleine (cake) soaked in tea and is suddenly strangely happy, and puzzled, and remembers...A brilliant evocation of how taste prompts memory - and also of tea and cake! Worth reading aloud as the French is so delicious. This sheet starts with a short biog of Proust that suggests why he was &';in search of lost times'. Long extract; pages 4, 5 or 6 could stand alone, though. Double spaced for annotation. Pupils could write their own memories prompted by childhood sweets.
