Proust in love by William C Carter ( )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 1,584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The acclaimed Proust biographer William Carter portrays Proust's amorous adventures and misadventures from adolescence through his adult years, supplying where appropriate Proust's own sensitive, intelligent, and often disillusioned observations about love and sexuality. Proust is revealed as a man agonizingly caught between the constant fear of public exposure as a homosexual, and the need to find and express love. In telling the story of "Proust in love", Carter also shows how the author's experiences became major themes in his novel "In Search of Lost Time". Carter discusses Proust's adolescent sexual experiences, his disastrous brothel visit to cure homosexual inclinations, and his first great loves. He also addresses the duel Proust fought with the journalist Jean Lorrain after he alluded to Proust's homosexuality in print, his flirtations with respectable women and high-class prostitutes, and his affairs with young men of the servant class. With new revelations about Proust's love life and a gallery of photographs, the book provides an unprecedented glimpse of Proust's gay Paris
Marcel Proust : a life by William C Carter ( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Parisian world of which Proust was a part was also home to such luminaries as Anatole France, Jean Cocteau, and Andre Gide. William C. Carter brings this social world to life while he explores the inner world of Proust's intellectual and artistic development, as well as his most intimate personal experience. Carter examines Proust's passionate attachment to his mother, his deep love for the scenes of his youth, his flirtation with Parisian high society, his complicated sexual desires, and his irrevocable commitment to literary truth - and shows how all of these played out in the making of his great novel."--BOOK JACKET

The Proustian quest by William C Carter ( Book )
6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Proustian Quest is the first full-length study that explores the influence of social change on Proust's vision. In Remembrance of Things Past, Proust describes how the machines of transportation and communication transformed fashion, social mores, time-space perception, and the understanding of the laws of nature. Concentrating on the motif of speed, Carter establishes the centrality of the modern world to the novel's main themes and produces a far- reaching synthesis that demonstrates the work's profound structural unity"--Publisher description
