Plays: Lolita: A Screenplay; The Tragedy of Mister Morn (The Penguin Vladimir Nabokov Hardback Collection)De (autor) Vladimir Nabokov
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 06 Sep 2012
Nabokov's first major work and his only play, The Tragedy of Mister Morn is a moving study of the elusiveness of happiness, the power of imagination and the eternal battle between truth and fantasy. In this astonishingly precocious work, we see for the first time the major themes of this great writer: intense sexual desire and jealousy, precarious make-believe, glittering happiness and abject despair.
Part of a major new beautiful hardback series of the works of Vladimir Nabokov, author of Pnin and Pale Fire, in Penguin Classics.
