Professor William C.Carter

William C. Carter is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of French at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His biography Marcel Proust: A Life was selected as a “Notable Book of 2000” by The New York Times.

Harold Bloom has written that Carter is “Proust’s definitive biographer” and that his more recent book, Proust in Love, is “a marvelous study of the comic splendor of the great novelist’s vision of human Eros and its discontents.” He co-produced the award-winning documentary film Marcel Proust: A Writer’s Life.

In 2013, Yale University Press published a new edition of the biography and began publishing a revised, annotated edition of Scott Moncrieff’s distinguished translation of In Search of Lost Time. That same year William Carter received the Médaille d’Or du Mérite Francophone from the American Delegation of La Renaissance Française.
