Description
Information
"This high-souled genuis... with his fervent faith that art is a 'divine game' and that pleasure in art consists in following the moves of the game with the artist... Nabokov communicated in every sentence his own playful and godlike bliss" - Sunday Times
Poet and pervert, Humbert becomes obsessed by 12 year old Lolita and seeks to possess her, first carnally and then artistically, out of love, 'to fix once for all the perilous magic of nymphets'. This seduction is one of many dimensions in Nabokov's dizzying masterpiece, which is suffused with rich, elaborate verbal textures.
