Lolita By Vladimir Nabokov
Lolita is a 1955 novel written by Russian-American novelist Vladimir Nabokov. The novel is notable for its controversial topic: the protagonist and unreliable narrator.
Awe and exhiliration–together with heartbreak and mordant wit–abound in Lolita, Nabokov’s most well-known and controversial novel, which tells the story of the getting older Humbert Humbert’s obsessive, devouring, and doomed ardour for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita can also be the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it’s a meditation on love–love as outrage and hallucination, insanity and transformation.
