Overview: Vladimir Nabokov: Lolita

Lolita is written by Russian author Vladimir Nabokov. The novel is a daring work of fiction that deals brazenly with the unconventional forms of love and relationships. The storyline is replete with discussions about the mysterious recesses of human psyche, that house carnal obsession, perversion and uncontrollable lust. Humbert Humbert, a professor of literature pushing 40, falls in love with a twelve-year-old girl Dolores Haze, who he amorously names 'Lolita'. It doesn't take too long for his love to turn into a sexual obsession and the girl cannot escape the trap of his desire, despite Humbert being her stepfather.

Vladimir Nabokov was a Russian author who wrote various novels and short stories. Mary, King, Queen, Knave, The Luzhin and The Eye are some of his most famous works. Many of Vladimir Nabokov's books are available for online purchase in India. Before you buy books from an online bookstore, take the help of to compare between various prices your chosen book is sold at and choose the lowest possible price.

Lolita created controversy across the literary domain for its controversial nature and bold theme. Lolita starts with an imaginary foreword that announces the death of Humbert from coronary thrombosis. It also informs readers of the demise of Lolita, while delivering a stillborn girl. After the foreword the story flows back in time and starts from a tempestuous phase of Humbert's life. After a series of unfortunate events, Humbert shifts his base to a small town in New England, with the ambition to write a book. In the bucolic neighbourhood he comes across a widow and her young daughter. His infatuation with the girl, Dolores, drives him into marrying her widowed mother, as he knows that he cannot develop a socially acceptable and recognised relationship with the girl. Therefore marrying her mother is the only thing he can do to stay around Lolita. The story moves ahead with Humbert entrapping Lolita and compelling her to give in to his domination.

The boldness of the plot is mitigated by the language of Nabokov, who is known for his mastery of the English language and the beauty of his prose. TIME named Lolita as one of the 100 best novels written in English between 1923 and 2005. Published by Penguin UK, the paperback edition of the book has the ISBN 10 number 0141182539 and ISBN 13 number 9780141182537.
