Description

'Flower and plant have no conscious will. They are shameless, exposing their genitals. And so in a sense are Proust's men and women...?hameless. There is no question of right and wrong. Homosexuality...?s as devoid of moral implications as the mode of fecundation of the Primula veris or the Lythrum salicoria.-------------------------------------------SAMUEL BECKETT The theme of Sodom and Gomorrah is sexual ambiguity. In the opening scene, the narrator secretly observes a sexual encounter between two men that is played out 'as though in obedience to the laws of an occult art' The book unfolds on matters of 'vice,' 'inversion,' mystery, desire, love, longing, and illusion. The final volume of a new, definitive text of A la recherche du temps perdu was published by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989. 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 French editions.
