Overview

La critique s’interesse depuis longtemps a l’influence de John Ruskin sur l’oeuvre de Marcel Proust. Nathalie Aubert reprend cette question en partant non d’une theorie de l’influence mais de la pratique meme de la traduction, puisque c’est en traduisant Ruskin que Proust a reconnu la ‘tache de l’ecrivain’ comme etant celle d’un ‘traducteur’. Dans cette etude innovatrice qui s’appuie sur la phenomenologie, et notamment sur les oeuvres de Merleau-Ponty, elle rapproche traduction textuelle et traduction ontologique et demontre que la traduction du sensible passe, chez Proust, par une analyse complexe des enjeux de la vision. In this innovative study, Nathalie Aubert demonstrates how the experience of translating Ruskin led Proust to see creative writing as itself an act of translation. She makes use of phenomenology to show how the Proustian metaphor operates as translation as it bridges the gap between reality and language.

Editorial Reviews

Modern Language Review, 99.3, 2004, 786-7 - W. L. Hodson
Careful examination of that delicate area between object seen and the deepening sense of being and elation which goes beyond the banality of the situation and becomes a challenge for the narrator to resolve in words: in fact, the very opposition of life and art that lies at the root of Proust’s quest.
French Review, 79.3, 2006, 624-25 - Gareth Gollrad
Utile et intéressant, ce petit volume introduit des observations profondes et nouvelles.
