Faint stain along base of rear jacket, ink underlining and marginalia on just a few pages. 1956 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!. Complete & unabridged in one volume. xiv, 611, [7] pp. Includes the complete text of Swann's Way in a single volume, translated into English from the original French by C.K. Scott Moncrieff, with an introduction by Lewis Galantiere. In Swann's Way, the themes of Proust's masterpiece are introduced, and the narrator’s childhood in Paris and Combray is recalled, most memorably in the evocation of the famous maternal good-night kiss. The recollection of the narrator’s love for Swann's daughter Gilberte leads to an account of Swann's passion for Odette and the rise of the nouveaux riches Verdurins. For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the late Terence Kilmartin's acclaimed reworking of C. K. Scott Moncrieff's translation to take into account the new definitive French editions of A la recherche du temps perdu (the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989).
