Lolita author Vladimir Nabokov free read Ô 6 Humbert Humbert scholar aesthete and romantic has fallen completely and utterly in love with Lolita Haze his landlady's gum snapping silky skinned twelve year old daughter Reluctantly agreeing t 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 some kind of compassion toward the narrator who think that Lolita was the one who seduced and manipulated poor Humbert Well I beg to differ Lolita is as erotic as Speak is pornographic As for favorable opinions of Humbert I guess it is possible this effect can be attributed to Nabokov s mastery of deception Clearly Humbert still half a century after the novel s publication manages to fool readers and himself into believing that he is a dedicated caring lover wounded and changed by an early tragic romance Only occasionally does the truth bleed through his self delusion Lolita s wistful glance at a child sitting on his father s lap a simple act that is forever sallied by Humbert s filth her disinterest in life her resignation to satisfy him for pocket money and permission to participate in a school play No Humbert did not fool me into feeling sorry for him On a technical level Lolita deserves full 5 stars the language the wit the world play I don t think I ve ever read anything like this before But emotionally this look into a pedophile s psyche is so disgusting I can t uite bring myself to rate it so Humbert is so sickly real to me with his apologies justifications of his behavior cowardice sob stories and bending of reality how does an author create someone like this How did Nabokov get such an intimate knowledge of someone so despicable

review Lolita author Vladimir Nabokov

Lolita author Vladimir Nabokov free read Ô 6 O marry Mrs Haze just to be close to Lolita Humbert suffers greatly in the pursuit of romance; but when Lo herself starts looking for attention elsewhere he will carry her off on a desperate cro 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 pitied pitied because he actually exists A child in a man s body unable to move on from what was to him the most perfect memory Humbert s obsession with youth takes on the form of paedophilia he becomes attracted to this idea of purity and develops strong sexual feelings towards it Humbert knows he is a monster but he just doesn t care To him his feelings are perfectly justifiable natural even He has an incredibly distorted view of the world thus we see the world through the eyes of an extremely unreliable narrator Perhaps unreliable is the wrong word He reports what he sees with utmost honesty however his perceptions of these experiences are well just wrong As a character study he is a very worthy subject In the wake of Freudian psychoanalysis Nabokov s novel is aware of the rising field of psychology Humbert is a walking contradiction He is at times unbelievably arrogant and at other times he is timid and weak he is passive yet manipulative he derides nothing from life other than a person sense of sexual gratification it s all he lives for He has an exceedingly narrow range of interests he scrutinises everything and remembers the most minor of details He is charming but at other times completely socially awkward I think it wouldn t be too far a thing to suggest that there are elements of Autism within his personality He is obsessive about things about his work and his Lolita Ironically at one point he expresses succinct knowledge of Freud and at another he demonstrates complete ignorance towards Freud s psychosexual stages of development So who exactly is this HumbertHumbert is lost he is lost in life and he is lost within himself he is hopeless looking for any sense of light in his life Unfortunately this projection of desperation takes on the form of a child He falls in love with Lolita and what she represents to him But of course it s not real love Lolita is just a sexual object to him not a person So what follows is a story of a man who has convinced himself that his actions are perfectly justified When he takes a twelve year old child in his arms it is perfectly fine to his mind because she comes willing Never mind the fact that he has crafted a situation so that she responds to his advances She is vulnerable and completely alone in the world she has no one to turn to in her moment of grief and the snake is ready to lungeNabokov describes some truly disturbing scenes though he does so with elouence bordering on the genius Sounds odd considering what I have just described The content of the book is vile Humbert is vile but in a fictionalised world we have to look beyond that The world is seen through the eyes of Humbert so everything we see is what he sees and what he experiences Nabokov uses free indirect style to narrate some harrowing scenes the content is vile but the language is beautiful Again this is what Humbert experiences As troubling as this book may be I argue that this has very strong place in the literary world Nabokov explores the mind of a sexual predator and I think as readers we can learn a great deal in the process We can see how the psychological make up of such an individual is formed and we can see what they think and they feel To understand such a man is the first step towards stopping him and recognising this behaviour in other men As a reviewer I find it of vital importance to read the reviews of others There s a uote on the back of my book from one such review it says and I uote There s no funnier monster in modern literature than poor doomed Humbert Humbert I cannot uite describe how angry that uote makes me There is nothing funny about LolitaThis book is terribly serious in content and Humbert is not a man to be laughed at What we have is a deeply disturbed individual one confused and drifting through life cold and utterly broken inside and he is about to ruin the life of a young girl I don t laugh at this book I weep at its brillianceYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree
