The Guermantes Way, in this the third volume of "In Search of Lost Time," refers to the path that leads to the Duc and Duchess de Guermantes's chateau near Combray. It also represents the narrator's passage into the rarefied social kaleidoscope of the Guermantes's Paris salon, an important intellectual playground for Parisian society, where he becomes a party to the wit and manners of the Guermantes's drawing room. Here he encounters nobles, officers, socialites, and assorted consorts, including Robert de Saint Loup and his prostitute mistress Rachel, the Baron de Charlus, and the Prince de Borodino.
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 "A la recherche du temps perdu" (the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989).
