en Limba Engleză Paperback – 25 Aug 2011
Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita is one of the best-known novels of the 20th century: the controversial story of Humbert Humbert who falls in love with twelve year old Lolita, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range.

'Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of my tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.'

Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged, frustrated college professor. In love with his landlady's twelve-year-old daughter Lolita, he'll do anything to possess her. Unable and unwilling to stop himself, he is prepared to commit any crime to get what he wants.

Is he in love or insane? A silver-tongued poet or a pervert? A tortured soul or a monster? Or is he all of these?

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express

Timi Debreczeni a dat nota:

I think I had way too many expectations for this book, being that I've heard so much about it. And it was an OK book. The writing style was really complex, I feel like it was a really hard book to read and understand because of thay, but in a good way. I loved Lolita's character, although so broken, she managed to remain a little girl. The story itself was really good, I liked that it was parted in 3, it's just that i felt that it was dragged a little.

Notă biografică

Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977), born in St Petersburg, exiled in Cambridge, Berlin, and Paris, became the greatest Russian writer of the first half of the twentieth century. Fleeing to the US with his family in 1940, he then became the greatest writer in English of the second half of the century, and even 'God's own novelist' (William Deresiewicz). He lived in Europe from 1959 onwards, and died in Montreux, Switzerland. All his major works - novels, stories, an autobiography, poems, plays, lectures, essays and reviews - are published in Penguin Modern Classics.


A masterpiece. One of the great works of art of our age
There's no funnier monster in modern literature than poor, doomed Humbert Humbert. Going to hell in his company would always be worth the ride
A great novel . . . It widens our own humanity
You read Lolita sprawling limply in your chair, ravished, overcome, nodding scandalized assent
Nabokov's command of words, his joy in them, his comic and ecstatic use of them, makes reading his work such an intense joy
Lolita is more the shocking because it is both intensely lyrical and wildly funny ... a Medusa's head with trick paper snakes
