The Modern Library’s fifth volume of In Search of Lost Time contains both The Captive (1923) and The Fugitive (1925). In The Captive, Proust’s narrator describes living in his mother’s Paris apartment with his lover, Albertine, and subsequently falling out of love with her. In The Fugitive, the narrator loses Albertine forever.

Rich with irony, The Captive and The Fugitive inspire meditations on desire, sexual love, music, and the art of introspection. 

For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the late Terence Kilmartin’s acclaimed reworking of C. K. Scott Moncrieff’s translation to take into account the new definitive French editions of Á la recherché du temps perdu (the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade in 1989).


“Proust was the greatest novelist of the twentieth century, just as Tolstoy was in the nineteenth.” —Graham Greene

About the Author

Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust (French: [maʁsɛl pʁust]; 10 July 1871 – 18 November 1922) was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental novel À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time; earlier translated as Remembrance of Things Past). He is considered by many to be one of the greatest authors of all time.

The novel was published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927. Proust's novels continue in their influence on contemporary culture and film with notable film productions including Time Regained featuring John Malkovich and Swann's Way featuring Jeremy Irons.
