In Search of Lost Time, Volume I: Swann's Way (Modern Library Series)


<p>In <i>Swann’s Way</i>, the themes of Proust’s masterpiece are introduced, and the narrator’s childhood in Paris and Combray is recalled, most memorably in the evocation of the famous maternal good-night kiss. The recollection of the narrator’s love for Swann’s daughter Gilberte leads to an account of Swann’s passion for Odette and the rise of the nouveaux riches Verdurins.</p> <p>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 <i>Á la recherché du temps perdu</i> (the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade in 1989).</p>
