Product Description

Review

insightful and inspiring study of Proust's use of the English language (Emily Eells Modern Languages Review, vol 102, part1)

As Professor Karlin reminds us, Proust offers a warning purists of any language, including Irish, would do well to heed. (Robert O'Byrne, The Irish Times)

A clever and delightful survey of the uses and status of English words in Proust's I la Recherche du temps perduR based on detailed and witty research into the rage for IanglomanieR in turn-of-the-century France. (Forum for Modern Language Studies)

Witty and urbane, Daniel Karlin has turned an unpromising, even unlikely subject into an unexpectedly intriguing view of Proust's masterpiece. (David Coward, Times Literary Supplement)

Everyone interested in Proust should read this book. (Thomas Baldwin, French Studies)

Proust's English is a significant, enriching trait in his writing...proving a masterly aspect of Proust's style in action. (John Simon, The New Criterion)

About the Author

Daniel Karlin is Professor of English at University College London and University Professor at Boston University.

Format: Hardcover
A must for all the lovers of Marcel Proust's La Recherche du Temps perdu. An essay about Proust and the english tongue.
Proust was not fluent in english, when he translated Ruskin, his mother had to do the first translation from english to french, so that Proust's Ruskin is his mother's text translated into Proust's style. I recommend also an essay about the influence of anglo-saxon writers in Proust's work, Henry James to begin with, and much more.
