One of the literary landmarks of the 20th century, Proust's epic novel, A la recherche du temps perdu, was first translated while the novelist was still alive by his contemporary, Charles Scott Moncrieff (1889-1930). Later translations may have benefited from better editions of the original text: Moncrieff's aimed to capture both the poetry and intellectual density of Proust's style. This edition presents the Moncrieff translation, bound as two volumes. Off-mint.
