Remembrance of Things Past. The Sweet Cheat Gone. Marcel Proust. Translated from the French by C. K. Scott Moncrieff. The bonds that unite another person to ourself exist only in our mind. Memory as it grows fainter relaxes them, and notwithstanding the illusion by which we would fain be cheated and with which, out of love, friendship, politeness, deference, duty, we cheat other people, we exist alone. Man is the creature that cannot emerge from himself, that knows his fellows only in himself; when he asserts the contrary, he is lying. We do not succeed in changing things according to our desire, but gradually our desire changes. The situation that we hoped to change because it was intolerable becomes unimportant. We have not managed to surmount the obstacle, as we were absolutely determined to do, but life has taken us round it, led us past it, and then if we turn round to gaze at the remote past, we can barely catch sight of it, so imperceptible has it become. A woman is of greater service to our life if she is in it, instead of being an element of happiness, an instrument of sorrow, and there is not a woman in the world the possession of whom is as precious as that of the truths which she reveals to us by causing us to suffer. 1.Grief and Oblivion. 2.Mademoiselle De Forcheville. 3.Venice. 4.A Fresh Light Upon Robert De Saint-Loup

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

'If the idea of death had cast a shadow over love, the memory of love had for long helped me not to fear death. I realised that death is nothing new'
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 The Captive, The Sweet Cheat Gone and Time Regained, showing the end of a relationship, a world destroyed by war and the possibility of redemption.
'For the reader wishing to tackle Proust your guide must be C. K. Scott Moncrieff' Daily Telegraph
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
