Description


One of the most fascinating and controversial novels of the twentieth century, Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita is renown for its innovative style and notorious for its subject matter and influence on popular culture. A Reader's Guide to Nabokov's ""Lolita"" carries readers through the intricacies of Nabokov's work and helps them achieve a better understanding of his rich artistic design. The book opens with a detailed chronology of Nabokov's life and literary career. Chapters include an analysis of the novel, a discussion of its precursors in Nabokov's work and in world literature, an essay on the character of Dolly Haze (Humbert's ""Lolita""), and a commentary on the critical and cultural afterlife of the novel. The volume concludes with an annotated bibliography of selected critical reading. The guide should prove illuminating both for first-time readers of Lolita and for experienced re-readers of Nabokov's classic work.
