Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The “Guermantes Way,” in this the third volume of In Search of Lost Time, refers to the path that leads to the Duc and Duchess de Guermantess château near Combray. It also represents the narrators passage into the rarefied “social kaleidoscope” of the Guermantess Paris salon, an important intellectual playground for Parisian society, where he becomes a party to the wit and manners of the Guermantess drawing room. Here he encounters nobles, officers, socialites, and assorted consorts, including Robert de Saint Loup and his prostitute mistress Rachel, the Baron de Charlus, and the Prince de Borodino.

For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the late Terence Kilmartins acclaimed reworking of C. K. Scott Moncrieffs translation to take into account the new definitive French editions of Á la recherché du temps perdu (the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade in 1989).

Synopsis:

The Guermantes Way (1920) refers to the footpath that runs past the chateau of the Duc and Duchesse de Guermantes, who introduce the narrator to their salon and "the social kaleidoscope" of Parisian society. In these volumes, we find ample evidence of what Walter Benjamin said of Proust: "There has never been anyone else with Proust's ability to show us things; Proust's pointing finger is unequaled.
