Remembrance of Things Past (Wordsworth Classics of World Literature)

De (autor) Traducere de C.K. Scott Moncrieff, Stephen Hudson
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – July 2006
Marcel Proust (1871-1922) spent the last fourteen years of his life writing "A la recherche du temps perdu". It is an intimate epic, an excavation of the self, and a comedy of manners by turns and all at once. Proust is the twentieth century's Dante, presenting us with a unique, unsettling picture of ourselves as jealous lovers and unmitigated snobs, frittering our lives away, with only the hope of art as a possible salvation. He offers us a form of redemption for a sober and secular age.Scott Moncrieff's delightful translation was for many years the only access to Proust in English. A labour of love that took him nearly as many years as Proust spent writing the original. Moncrieff's translation strives to capture the extraordinary blend of muscular analysis with poetic reverie that typifies Proust's style. It remains a justly famous classic of translation.

Notă biografică

Marcel Proust (Author)
Proust was born in Auteuil, France in 1871. He began writing his masterpiece, À la recherche du temps perdu, in 1909, and worked on it until his death in 1922, following several years of poor health during which he had been confined to his bedroom.

C. K. Scott Moncrieff (Translator)
Charles Kenneth Scott Moncrieff was born in Scotland in 1889 and served on the Western Front in the First World War, where he was seriously injured at the Battle of Arras. In 1922, he started work on his famous translation of Proust's novel, taking his English title from Shakespeare's Sonnet 30. He was still translating the novel at the time of his death in Rome in 1930.


Textul de pe ultima copertă

'And suddenly the memory returns. The taste was that of the little crumb of madeleine which on Sunday mornings at Combray ... my aunt Léonie used to give me, dipping it first in her own cup of real or of lime-flower tea'
At once intimate and epic, Proust's transformative novel follows one man's search for meaning in his life, from childhood through love affairs, jealousy, desire and loss to the discovery of his vocation - and salvation - in art. Scott Moncrieff's masterly early-twentieth-century translation of Remembrance of Things Past captures both Proust's grandeur and lyricism, and is now regarded as an immortal classic in its own right. This volume contains Swann's Way and Within a Budding Grove, reflecting on the narrator's impressions of his idyllic childhood, and his first meeting with the mysterious Albertine.
'Scott Moncrieff's volumes belong to that special category of translations which are themselves literary masterpieces ... his book is one of those translations, such as the Authorized Version of the Bible itself, which can never be displaced' A. N. Wilson
Translated by C. K. Scott Moncrieff

Scott Moncrieff's [volumes] belong to that special category of translations which are themselves literary masterpieces ... his book is one of those translations, such as the Authorized Version of the Bible itself, which can never be displaced
For the reader wishing to tackle Proust your guide must be C K Scott Moncrieff ... There are some who believe his headily perfumed translation of À la recherche du temps perdu conjures Belle Époque France more vividly even than the original
I was more interested and fascinated by your rendering than by Proust's creation
