Sodom and Gomorrah: In Search of Lost Time, Volume 4

Marcel Proust and William C. Carter


Marcel Proust's monumental seven-part novel In Search of Lost Time is considered by many to be the greatest novel of the twentieth century. The fourth volume, Sodom and Gomorrah, is notable for its pioneering discussion of homosexuality. After its publication, Colette wrote to Proust, “No one has written pages such as these on homosexuals, no one!” This edition is edited and annotated in the endeavor to bring the classic C. K. Scott Moncrieff translation closer to the spirit and style of the original.

Keywords: twentieth-century novel, homosexuality, translation, In Search of Lost Time, Sodom and Gomorrah
