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

22 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 1,416 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 )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Proust biographer William C. Carter portrays Marcel Proust's amorous adventures and misadventures from adolescence through his adult years, supplying where appropriate the novelist'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, Carter also shows how the author's experiences became major themes in his novel In Search of Lost Time."
The Proustian quest by William C Carter( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 499 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

Archival interviews include Jean Cocteau, Francois Mauriac, and Celeste Albaret, Proust's long-time friend and assistant. (60 minutes)
Auf der Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit by Marcel Proust( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 18 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
