On this weeks Topic Tuesday Meredith picks a quote from page 119 of Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel.
“After dad died, an updated translation of Proust came out. Remembrance of Things Past was re-titled In Search of Lost Time.
The new title is a more literal translation of À La Recherche Du Temps Perdu, but it still doesn’t quite capture the full resonance of perdu.
This means not just lost but ruined, undone, wasted, wrecked, and spoiled. What’s lost in translation is the complexity of loss itself.”
