A new definitive text of Marcel Proust's novel was published by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989. For the present six-volume edition, D. J. Enright has further revised Terence Kilmartin's acclaimed revision of C. K. Scott Moncrieff's translation, and has incorporated significant new material.
As a result, Proust's masterpiece emerges with renewed freshness and authority in this unassailable translation. Each volume contains notes, addenda and synopses, and the sixth and final volume also includes a Guide to the complete work.
"Oh if I could write like that!" -- Virginia Woolf "One of the cornerstones of the Western literary canon" The Times "Proust sinks deepest in readers because the book is so exhaustively analytical, so ceaselessly truthful... The experience of reading [the book] becomes, in itself, an unforgettable thing" Independent "The way he replicates the workings of the mind changed the art of novel-writing forever...his style is extraordinary, enveloping, captivating" Guardian "There are many who swear the experience has permanently enriched their lives" Daily Mail
