Verdurin and her bourgeois salon upward on the social ladder? In recording this change is Proust, in fact, chronicling the birth of modern society?
The title Sodom and Gomorrah functions on many levels. What does it suggest about the nature of society? What new areas does it open up? What seems different?

If he is mistaken about one of the most important relationships in his life, can readers trust his observations about other subjects and people?
