Time Regained in Search of Lost Tim Volume 6by Marcel Proust
Synopses & Reviews
Time Regained, the final volume of In Search of Lost Time, begins in the bleak and uncertain years of World War I. Years later, after the wars end, Prousts 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 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).
The Modern Library's paperback Proust series is completed with the four volumes published from 1921 (Sodom and Gomorrah) through 1927 (Time Regained). The Captive (1923) was the first to be published after the author's death and is presented together with The Fugitive (1925). D.J. Enright has taken advantage of the definitive Pleiade editions to revise the original translations. The Modem Library is home to Proust. In Search of Lost Time is now available in Modern Library paperback and hardcover, as is the Proust Six-Pack: all six hardcover books shrinkwrapped together for $125.00
Volume VI includes the indispensable Guide to Proust compiled by Terence and Joanna Kilmartin. The guide is an exhaustive synopsis of each of the original seven books and indexes of all the characters, places, themes, and real-life people mentioned by Proust in In Search of Lost Time, his life's achievement.
