In 1912, the first volume of his most famous work, Remembrance of Things Past (la Recherche du Temps Perdu) - a seven volume novel based on Proust's own life - was published at his own expense with little success. The next volumes of this work, however, secured his international fame. This allegorical tale occupied the closing years of Proust's life; the last three parts were published posthumously, without his final revisions.
