William C. Carter - Marcel Proust's The Guermantes Way: In Search of Lost Time, Volume 3

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 9, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

As the author of the critically acclaimed Proust in Love and Marcel Proust: A Life, Carter, who Harold Bloom called “Proust’s definitive biographer,” is probably the ideal editor for a new edition of the French modernist’s seminal work of auto-fiction, In Search of Lost Time. After issuing revised versions of C. K. Scott Moncrieff’s translation of Swann’s Way and In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower, Carter has come to the third of the seven volumes, which moves from the fiction’s initial intimacy to a more critical treatment of Parisian social life. As in the previous books, Carter corrects past errors and modernizes Moncrieff’s language, comments on various textual questions, and thoughtfully annotates the novel to bring it as close as possible to the spirit and style of Proust’s original writing.
