Synopsis of A Reader's Guide To Nabokov's Lolita

Vladimir Nabokov's 'Lolita' is one of the most fascinating
and controversial novels of the twentieth century. This book seeks
to guide readers through the intricacies of Nabokov's work and
to help them achieve a better understanding of his rich artistic
design. 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 text.
