الوصف

Humbert Humbert – scholar, aesthete and romantic – has fallen completely and utterly in love with Dolores Haze, his landlady’s gum-snapping, silky skinned twelve-year-old daughter. Reluctantly agreeing to marry Mrs Haze just to be close to Lolita, Humbert suffers greatly in the pursuit of romance; but when Lo herself starts looking for attention elsewhere, he will carry her off on a desperate cross-country misadventure, all in the name of Love. Hilarious, flamboyant, heart-breaking and full of ingenious word play, Lolita is an immaculate, unforgettable masterpiece of obsession, delusion and lust.

The novel chronicles Humbert’s obsession with Lolita and his manipulative and ultimately abusive relationship with her as they travel across the United States. Nabokov’s writing in “Lolita” is characterized by its lyrical prose, intricate wordplay, and dark humor, which serves to both captivate and unsettle the reader.
Despite its disturbing subject matter, “Lolita” is celebrated for its literary brilliance and has been praised for its exploration of themes such as desire, obsession, and the corruption of innocence. Nabokov challenges readers to confront their own moral judgments and perceptions of love and sexuality through Humbert’s unreliable narration.

“Lolita” has sparked intense debate and controversy since its publication due to its portrayal of taboo subjects, including pedophilia. However, it’s also widely regarded as a masterpiece of literature and continues to be studied and analyzed for its complex narrative structure and psychological depth.
