Dynamic Changes in Views and Expectations Prousts Remembrance of Things Past Stravinskys Le Sacre du printemps and TS Eliots The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock all embodied ideas that were viewed as unacceptable during the early 1900s In fact these works were so radical in their unconventionality that new forms of art sprang forth from them directly The society at those times was not ready for such dramatic changes that were brought about so rapidly and people could not understand these new and different ways of thinking This denoted the changes in perception thought and ideals that were about to occur during the pre-war era Remembrance of Things Past strongly deviated from the accepted styles of writing that existed in the early 20th century Proust wrote his book from a first-person perspective but the narrator was far from omniscient In fact he failed to see all angles of his situations Instead of going along with the ideals of the times Proust was a timid character who wanted nothing more than shelter from the cruel world He sought refuge in his mother while his father wanted him to grow up and become a man Contrary to this work most writers during this time tended to portray the narrator as a hero This story on the other hand has no real hero at all Proust in essence regaled the reader with a story about his childhood which basically had no real plot He wrote using stream of consciousness switching from one scene to the next This was very different because writers in those times wrote plot-based works that stuck to the point at all times This new form of writing created a very different artistic style and technique Proust basically drew a picture of his childhood using words and memories As he flowed from one aspect of his childhood to the next he would draw the reader into his paradigm of solitude and day dreaming
