Comments Lolita

  1. Between the CoversAfter re reading Lolita , I asked my local bookseller if she d ever read it.She replied firmly, No and I m not going to either He s a paedophile A bit taken aback, I enquired further, Who The author or the character Fortunately, she replied, The character For me, this exchange showed how much Lolita can still sharply divide opinion, even within lovers of fiction.This wasn t the conversation I had been hoping for.I had read Lolita in a couple of days, less time than my work comm [...]

  2. Once, a long time ago I was an 11 year old girl I did not always appear my age, nor act it I was long and lean and blonde and full of the confidence that only a young child can exude Me, circa 1998 A ripe 11 years old thinking I was to be America s Next Top Model Ha It was around this time that my body began raging with hormones and ideas about boys and love I was introduced to sex at a young age My sister being 4 years my elder thought she should show me the ways of the world And boy did she in [...]

  3. Now, this is going to be embarrassing to admit.As we all should know, reading and enjoying a book is largely about interpretation People are not the same and we all view things differently, one individual might see a relationship in a book as passionate while another could see it as damaging When characters make bad decisions, some will view it as stupidity and others will view it as an accurate representation of humanity s imperfections Not only that, but time often changes the way one person s [...]

  4. I wasn t even going to write a review of Lolita after finishing it, because, honestly, how many reviews does this classic need That is, until I started pocking around and reading what others have to say about it Many reactions to this book are puzzling to me In this world of Jerry Sanduskys and such, there are still people who find this erotic, who in the end feel compassionate towards the narrator, who think that Lolita was the one who seduced and manipulated poor Humbert Well, I beg to differ [...]

  5. An old friend used to say that Ulysses was a good book to read but not a good book to read After reading Lolita I understand what he meant.Nabokov was a man obsessed with word games and this book is crammed cover to cover with many brilliant examples Language delighted the man and that certainly comes across What makes this acheivement even amazing was that English was his third or fourth language It is mind blowing that he or anyone could write so fluidly in a foreign tongue If this was enough [...]

  6. Nymph Nymphet Nymphetiquette Nymphology Nymphism I will never think of 12 year old girls the same way There s a stain on my brain The power of this book is that it s creepy and taboo, but the pedophilia and incest is so damn plausible There s a criminal, upsetting proclivity of the subject matter, but the whole thing is oiled with reason SAY IT AINT SO It s deviant, queer, puerile, and yet ever so human, darkly human, perverted in the corner.Lolita lingers in my mind, like an accidental glance a [...]

  7. LUST AND LEPIDOPTERY Legend of a Licentious Logophile 1 Libidinous linguist lusts after landlady s lass.2 Lecherous lodger weds lovelorn landlady.3 Landlady loses life.4 Lascivious lewd looks after little Lolita.5 Lubricious Lolita loves licking lollipops lambitively.6 Licentious lecturer loves Lolita louchely.7 Lechery lands lusty lamister in legal limbo.8 Lachrymose libertine languishes in lockup.

  8. Pushing the boundaries of what acceptable literature can actually be, Lolita is very much a piece of art For many years I kept hearing about this book, the content sounding disturbing and perhaps even slightly fascinating It s a book that s central theme is one of the darkest elements of mankind paedophilia And although such a thing is beyond revolting, it is used to tell the tale of a very lost and very lonely man Humbert is a man to be pitted, pitted because he actually exists A child in a man [...]

  9. I once represented a man who had been accused of statutory rape and sexual exploitation of a minor I did it because it is my job and I fundamentally believe that everyone, no matter how heinous the crime alleged, deserves a fair trial.That said, it was the single most unpleasant experience of my legal career and high in the running for most unpleasant all time.In popular culture we are inundated with scenes of crime and violence, we live in a morally relative landscape where to each his own is t [...]

  10. Nabokov often writes his novels in the perspective of detestable villains You never like them, you re never supposed to like them, and Nabokov doesn t like them either He slaps them around and humiliates them And in the end, they pay the price for their sins Readers never seem to realize this They become immersed in the psychology of the book and feel defiled by it all Instead, they should sit back and watch the bastards suffer The stories are written in their own view so that makes the punishme [...]

  11. Ranked as one of the Top 100 Fiction of the 20th Century I m not quite sure how to put this in words Hell, I m not sure what I intend to say, so this is going to be ugly If you want to sit in on this exercise be my guest, you ve probably got important things to do, such as organizing your cassette tapes and LPs before shoving them in a box destined for the attic, believe me, your time will be better spent, especially when you take that stroll down memory lane and consider how killer it would be [...]

  12. Other formerly shocking novels of previous centuries have lost their power, batteries quite flat Madame Bovary, Ulysses, Lady Chatterly s Lover we love them still but we wince no , we may be quite amused at the idea that this word or that idea was not allowed in polite society we may, indeed, be vastly amused at the very idea of polite society because society is just not very polite at all these days But uniquely, Lolita, this great and appalling novel, only gets shocking and dangerous as the [...]

  14. Astoundingly beautiful prose, a self aware psychotic narrator who is both unapologetic and yet disgusted by his crime many themes in this book, so much symmetry 342 Humbert Humbert knows he is both brilliant and insanely obsessed with pre pubescent girls He tortures his psychiatrists cunningly leading them on never letting them see he knew every trick of the trade P 34 He becomes a lodger with Ms Haze, a widow, and sees his nymphet in her yard, a blue sea wave swelled under his heart and, from a [...]

  15. Warning contains spoilers for The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, L ge de raison and this bookI remember seeing an interview with Nabokov, where he was asked what long term effect he thought Lolita had had I suppose the interviewer was looking for some comment on the liberalization of censorship laws, or something like that Nabokov didn t want to play as you can see in Look at the Harlequins, he was pretty tired of these questions So he said well, as far as he could make out, there had only been one ef [...]

  16. Human life is but a series of footnotes to a vast obscure unfinished masterpiece.Opening a book is a unique conversation with another, the chance to enter and occupy the headspace of a writer, a character, a voice screaming out into the void We see life our own world or fantastic realities that function as elaborate metaphors for our own through another s eyes, walk a mile in another s skin as Atticus Finch would say, and learn that despite the differences between individuals, we are all part of [...]

  17. The word name Lolita always had a negative connotation for me I became familiar with it at a relatively young age, when a famous villain in Bollywood used to say this name in a movie whenever he used to get horny on seeing a damsel AauuLalita Lolita as I used to thought , my Indian friends should know And then I had an aunt I was not much fond of, whose name was Lalita and I used to call her Lolita unlovingly When I was in 6th or 7th standard, we had a Physical Education teacher Pun fully intend [...]

  18. I recently got into an argument with a friend about Lolita I contend that it s one of the most beautiful books ever written, and that it s twice as amazing because Nabakov wrote it in English which is his second or third language She contended that it was about a child molestor and was inexcusable.I argued that it was about chronicling a slightly off kilter man s descent into wretched madness and total loathsomeness A portrait of a child molestor, not necessarily a sanctioning of one.She held t [...]

  20. ENGLISH Lolita ITALIANOAfter dusty years in my bookshelf, finally I decided to read Lolita I am blown away by this Vladimir Nabokov s work, ironic and dramatic at the same time I am not shocked, nor I have found those disastrous tones of an announced tragedy that I was expecting from this book Indeed Nabokov tells us that this work brings along no moral For me a work of fiction exists only if it gives me what I frankly shall call aesthetic pleasure The main character, Humbert, describes in a pre [...]

  21. This is the fourth Nabokov work I ve read in as many weeks, and what I d really like to do in this review is compare the four books in terms of narrators, literary references, mirror effects, word games, etc and avoid entirely commenting on the issue of underage sex slaves But I can t do that Not when the core of the book concerns the main character s obsession with girl children of twelve years of age Not when he is so particular in his categorising of those girl children that he begins to soun [...]

  22. I feel like a mental midget in trying to explain my feelings about this book I struggle to understand why it is considered such a classic piece of literature Am I jaded by my own time Have I heard too often the world lolita used in modern contexts to refer to young girls who are attractive to adult men who should know better I had to delve into some literary criticism in order to help me understand, and I think what Lolita tries to do is tell a disguting story about a disgusting man using beauti [...]

  23. This book scared the living daylights out of me As everyone says its gorgeously written The language is so rich that it somehow spills over the sentences there s to them than you can easily ingest The writing makes the whole thing a pleasure to read, and in a lot of ways puts Nabakov in control from the start there isn t a lot of room to imagine motives since Nabakov explains so much I should point out that were a lesser writer spend any time at all writing in a language I can t read, I may hav [...]

Ay, Humbert Humbert, qu raro me hace sentir Qu desagrado me caus leer sus m s profundos pensamientos y sus a n m s execrables acciones Qu inc modo estuve al contemplar su obsceno y quim rico deseo hecho realidad Ay, Humbert Humbert, en qu disyuntiva me ha dejado Porque, si tanto asco me dio, qu es lo que siento en el pecho Dolor Rechazo Pena Felicidad Enfado Simpat a Ay, Humbert Humbert, qu extra o era usted, con ese amor tan vehemente, ese paroxismo fluyente en cada rinc n de su anatom a, por s [...]

  25. Back when it was published in 1955, the story of Lolita convulsed its readers and revealed a completely new portray of a paedophile s life The character of Humbert Humbert has become a well known and much interpreted part of 20th century literature, and ever since its publication, Nabokov s novel has been banned for certain periods of time in France, England, Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa due to its difficult contents Focusing on the life of highly intelligent and incalculable Humbert [...]

  26. When Humbert Humbert, his parents had little imagination was thirteen he fell in love with Annabel, a girl of the same age Living in a posh hotel on the French Riviera owned by his widowed father, during the 1920 s, idyllic but life is not After some smooching not enough for the boy, she moves away with her family and soon expires on a Greek isle, trouble is Humbert never forgets or recovers from this The clock ticks forward yet still remembering the dreams, nightmares in fact, continue, every f [...]
