The Albertine Workout
Marcel never says the word "lesbian" to Albertine. He says "the kind of woman I object to."
Albertine denies she knows any such women. Marcel assumes she is lying.
The Albertine Workout contains fifty-nine paragraphs, with appendices, summarizing Anne Carson’s research on Albertine, the principal love interest of Marcel in Proust’s Á la recherche du temps perdu.
