About this item
Edited and annotated by leading Proust scholar William Carter, In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower is the second of seven volumes of one of the twentieth century’s great literary triumphs. As withSwann’s Way, Carter uses C. K. Scott Moncrieff’s beloved translation as the basis for this annotated and fully revised edition. Carter corrects long-standing errors in Scott Moncrieff’s otherwise superlative translation, bringing it closer than ever to the spirit and style of Proust’s original text—and reaching English readers in a way that the Pléiade annotations cannot. Insightful and accessible, Carter’s edition of Marcel Proust’s masterwork will be the go-to reading and teaching text for generations of readers seeking to understand Proust’s remarkable bygone world.
