So what are the best versions of In Search of Lost Time? That is, which is the best French edition as well as which is the best English translation?
So I would guess the Vintage paperbacks of Terence Kilmartin's revision of Scottcrief's are good then? They look more aesthetically pleasing than the Modern Library versions, and certainly more than the Penguin ones. The Yale edition I can't imagine being finished until about 2030, and each volume costs way more than I'd like to pay
I'm never sure if you guys are joking or you seriously think somebody should spend years of learning that atrocity that is called the French language just to enjoy maybe a dozen works of art.
Between French and German I picked German. Between French and Spanish I picked Spanish. Third time I'd pick Italian or Russian.
>knowing the novels have been revised about as much as Ulysses
... please stop, you haven't even bothered checking french versions, otherwise you wouldn't say that.
Anyway, ofc your answer is gallimard.
