Since the original, prewar translation there has been no completely new rendering of the French original into English. This translation brings to the fore a more sharply engaged, comic and lucid Proust. IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME is one of the greatest, most enjoyable reading experiences in any language. As the great story unfolds from its magical opening scenes to its devastating end, it is the Penguin Proust that makes Proust accessible to a new generation. Each book is translated by a different, superb translator working under the general editorship of Professor Christopher Prendergast.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful continuation of this series This volume focuses on gay & lesbian relationships. It's sometimes on the side of "love is love" and sometimes on the side of "it's not to be tolerated". This could be Proust making peace with his own thoughts, guilt, shame, lusts, desires, etc, within the society he lived in. It is a terrible thing to have to deny oneself in one's own society & people. Obsession is another prevalent theme. It's a rather cloying, claustrophobic theme.Proust's writing is very powerful to give Obsession that closed in feeling through words and paper. I enjoyed this volume. It's humorous, has a story line, beautiful lines and thoughts to ponder. I've really come to like Charlus and hope we see more of him in the next volumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true classic #plumreview Somewhat embarrassed as to how long it took me to actually finish these, considering how long ago they were bought. Such depth from what would be normally cast off as mundane.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bound Upside down I bought this, and it's a beautiful set, however the last book in the series is bound upside down. Not sure what this is about, but just thought I would post it here so someone can fix the error for future customers.
