In the Shadow of an Old Translation From Remembrance of Things Past to In Search of Lost Time

Abstract : This is a comparative study of the translations of À la Recherche du Temps Perdu. Based on a small extract of around twenty pages, this work compares the methods used by the translators - Moncrieff's version being closer to a word-for-word translation than Grieve's who favours literary translations - and the accuracy of the choices made by the translators, in the translation of tenses and the use of vocabulary for instance. These comparisons are preceded by a study of the reception of those translations in the Medias and a small review of the history of the translations. Following Meschonnic method, only the differences between the two translations have been compared and the author tried to expose the defaults and the qualities of the two texts.
