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

27 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 1,400 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."--Jacket
Proust in love by William C Carter( Book )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 673 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

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the complete text of the memoir, with an introduction and helpful annotations by the distinguished Proust scholar William C. Carter. Also included here is other new material: the inscriptions that Proust wrote for Forssgren's copy of Swann's Way; an important telegram that Proust sent Forssgren, which defines with greater precision the novelist's activities in the final months of his life; Forssgren's "Summary" of the first English biography of Proust, by George D. Painter, which provides many new details about Proust's last trip to Cabourg in 1914 and his attempts at seducing young men of the servant class; and the notes that Forssgren made in his copy of Painter's biography."--Jacket
In the shadow of young girls in flower by Marcel Proust( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was this volume that won the Prix Goncourt in 1919, affirming Proust as a major literary figure and dramatically increasing his fame. Here the narrator whose childhood was reflected in Swann's Way moves further through childhood and into adolescence, as the author brilliantly examines themes of love and youth, in settings in Paris and by the sea in Normandy. The reader again encounters Swann, now married to his former mistress and largely fallen from high society, and meets for the first time several of Proust's most memorable characters: the handsome, dashing Robert de Saint-Loup, who will become the narrator's best friend; the enigmatic Albertine, leader of the "little band" of adolescent girls; the profoundly artistic Elstir, believed to be Proust's composite of Whistler, Monet, and other leading painters; and, making his unforgettable entrance near the end of the volume, the intense, indelible Baron de Charlus. Permeated by the "bloom of youth" and its resonances in memories of love and friendship, In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower takes readers into the heart of Proust's comic and poetic genius. As with Swann'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 text for generations of readers seeking to understand Proust's remarkable bygone world."--

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)
