Many literary scholars and academicians regard late 19th and early 20th century French belletrist Marcel Proust as the most profound and gifted writer to emerge in the wake of the Bard himself. With such seminal works as Cities of the Plain, The Fugitive, and particularly the seven-part, posthumously-issued Rememberance of Things Past, Proust indelibly changed the way in which the western world conceives of literature. The biographical documentary Famous Authors: Proust caters to those unfamiliar with the Gallic author's life by providing a concise, 30-minute overview of the author's life and literary accomplishments.
