abstract

In the Recherche’s sixth volume, Proust devotes an astonishing section on the theme of the escape. Albertine decides to run away from the Narrator’s morbid jealousy, leaving no trace of herself. In this paper, the Proustian character will be considered as the emblem of the woman prisoner and dissatisfied, the victim of the gaze of a rigid society and, yet, powerful and free. Albertine, metaphor and allegory of the woman who plays an undesirable role, has recently been the subject of the re-reading of the Proustian work by the Canadian writer Anne Carson (The Albertine Workout 2014). We too would like to adopt the point of view of Albertine, if possible, and review, in the images of women censored, by the Iranian photographer Niloufar Banisadr, the portrait of escaping women, who choose, through art, the path of the existential battle.
