Time Remembered Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Time Remembered

Amanda, a pretty young milliner is brought to the estate of an eccentric Duchess, ostensibly to pose as the dead lover of her nephew, Prince Albert. The Prince's lover had died after he had known her for only three days and he has been mooning over her memory for the past two years in a state of constant melancholy. At first when he sees Amanda, he wants nothing to do with her or she with him. She agrees to play the role, but gradually she becomes more and more herself. The Prince begins to suspect that he was never in love with the dead girl at all as he becomes more and more attracted to the live one. Anouilh writes a play about a man trapped in his memories.
