Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
, the final volume of In Search of Lost Time
, begins in the bleak and uncertain years of World War I. Years later, after the war's end, Proust's narrator returns to Paris and reflects on time, reality, jealousy, artistic creation, and the raw material of literature--his past life. This Modern Library edition also includes the indispensable Guide to Proust
, compiled by Terence Kilmartin and revised by Joanna Kilmartin.
For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the late Terence Kilmartin's acclaimed reworking of C. K. Scott Moncrieff's translation to take into account the new definitive French editions of A la recherche du temps perdu
(the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989).
“Proust is perhaps the last great historian of the loves.” —Edmund Wilson
