  • Additional Information
    • Abstract:
      Summary: Humbert Humbert attempts to justify his love for and obsession with the barely adolescent Dolores Haze, known as Lolita. Humbert's cross-country flight with his adored nymphet ends with her betrayal of him with his rival, the evil Quilty, who pursues Lolita not out of love but out of lust and selfishness, and who functions as a kind of double for the more pure-hearted (if perverse) Humbert.

LJ Reviews 2009 December #1

Nabokov's classic story about a middle-aged, expatriate European man's obsessive love for a 12-year-old girl. While Lolita continues to raise the hackles of would-be censors even today, most [readers] will marvel at the restraint and playful humor with which Nabokov limns his tale. [This is the first time the Spanish-language translation is readily available in the United States and a reasonable price.-Ed.] [LJ 4/15/97] Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
