Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Proust is perhaps the last great historian of the loves, the society, the intelligence, the diplomacy, the literature, and the art of the Heartbreak House of capitalist culture."--Edmund Wilson

Time Regained, the final book in Proust's masterpiece, À la recherche du temps perdu, chronicles the years of World War I, when, as M. de Charlus reflects on a moonlit walk, Paris threatens to become another Pompeii. Years later, after the war's end, Proust's narrator returns to Paris, where Mme. Verdurin has become the Princesse de Guermantes. He 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. The Guide consists of four separate indexes: of characters, of real and historical persons, of places, and of themes.

The final volume of a new, definitive text of À la recherche du temps perdu was published by the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade in 1989. For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the translation by Andreas Mayor and the late Terence Kilmartin to take into account the new French editions. À la recherche du temps perdu is available from the Modern Library in six volumes in both hardcover and paperback.
