Marcel Proust : a life by William C Carter( Book )

28 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an account of the life and times of Marcel Proust, one of the greatest literary voices of the twentieth century. Based on a host of recently available letters, memoirs, and manuscripts, it sheds new light on Proust's character, his development as an artist, and his masterpiece In Search of Lost Time (long known in English as Remembrance of Things Past). The biography also sets Proust's life in the decadent artistic and social context of the French fin de siecle and the years leading up to World War I."
Proust in love by William C Carter( Book )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carter discusses Proust's adolescent sexual experiences, his disastrous brothel visit meant to cure homosexual inclinations, and his first great loves. He also addresses the duel Proust fought after the journalist Jean Lorrain alluded to his 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 a glimpse of Proust's gay Paris."--Jacket
The Proustian quest by William C Carter( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 498 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

In search of lost time by Marcel Proust( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years have passed since Marcel Proust published the first volume of what was to become a seven-volume masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time. In the intervening century his famously compelling novel has never been out of print and has been translated into dozens of languages. English-language readers were fortunate to have an early and extraordinarily fine translation of the novel from Charles Kenneth Scott Moncrieff. With the passage of time, however, the need for corrections, revisions, and annotations to the Scott Montcrieff translation has become apparent. Esteemed Proust scholar William C. Carter celebrates the publication centennial of Swann{u2019}s Way with a new, more accurate and illuminating edition of the first volume of In Search of Lost Time. Carter corrects previous translating missteps to bring readers closer to Proust{u2019}s intentions while also providing enlightening notes to clarify biographical, historical, and social contexts. Presented in a reader-friendly format alongside the text, these annotations will enrich and deepen the experience of Proust{u2019}s novel, immersing readers in the world of an unsurpassed literary genius."--Publisher's description

Design for validation : an approach to systems validation( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Every complex system built is validated in some manner. Computer validation began with one person reviewing the design of the system. As systems became too complicated for one person to review, validation began to rely on the application of adhoc methods by many individuals. As the cost of changes mounted and the expense of failures increased, more organized procedures became essential. Attempts at devising and carrying out those procedures showed that validation is indeed a difficult technical problem. The successful transformation of the validation process into a systematic series of formally sound, integrated steps is necessary if the liability inherent in future digital-system-based avionic and space systems is to be minimized. This report presents a suggested framework and timetable for that transformation. In sections two through four, we provide basic working definitions of two pivotal ideas--validation and system life-cycle, and show how the two concepts interact. Many examples are given of past and present validation activities by NASA and others. In section five, we present a conceptual framework for the validation process. Finally, in sections six and seven, we list important areas for ongoing development of the validation process at NASA Langley Research Center (NASA-LaRC)
