The annotated Lolita

Характеристика издания

Пособие/книга "The annotated Lolita", автором которой является Nabokov V., издана "Penguin books", в рамках серии "Modern Classics". Издание выполнено в мягкой бумажной обложке и растиражировано.



When Lolita was first published in 1955 it created a sensation and established Nabokov as one of the most original prose writers of the twentieth century. This annotated edition, a revised and considerably expanded version of the 1970 edition, does full justice to the textual riches of Lolita, illuminating the elaborate verbal textures and showing how they contribute to the novel's overall meaning. Alfred Appel, Jr. also provides fresh observations on the novel's artifice, games and verbal patternings and a delightful biographical vignette of Nabokov. The annotations themselves were prepared in consultation with Nabokov while newly identified allusions were confirmed by him during the final years of his life.
