Proust, Marcel: The Remembrance of Things Past

Note: I previously posted this in ePub format. This is a Calibre conversion from ePub to Mobi for MR users viewing books posted here with Kindles or Kindle apps. ePub generally converts readily to Mobi, and this appears to be a decent conversion.)

You may blame me for this.

I'm extravagantly fond of the collected editions MR user pynch has been creating. (His collected works of James Joyce is a read-in-progress on my tablet.) I consider his contributions prime examples of the eBook maker's art.

He previously created a collected volume of the writings of French author Marcel Proust, whose seven volume À la Recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past) is one of the classic works of literature.

Pynch's collected Proust includes À la Recherche du temps perdu. But while I took French, Spanish, and Latin long ago, I had no cause to use them and remember almost none. I am not up to reading Proust in the original French.

I asked Pynch in a PM if he'd consider doing a companion volume with an English translation. The University of Adelaide has the works in the Scott Moncrieff translation and available as ePubs, and I have the set, but I lusted after an omnibus edition.

Pynch was not enthusiastic: he thinks of translations as bastard children, and prefers to produce only electronic versions of the originals. But he then stated that the University of Adelaide did decently formatted works, and he could do a quick-and-dirty omnibus package with a cover and internal links, which he could send to me. I could upload it to MR, and it would be my bastard child, not his.

That was what I'd hoped for when I made the request, and I agreed enthusiastically.

So credit goes to the University of Adelaide for the original eBooks collected here, and to pynch for the superb packaging.

Blame goes to me as the instigator.

Meanwhile, I'm delighted to have this, and I hope you will be too.

Thanks, pynch!
