About this book

Nabokov's complex multi-lingual, multi-cultural writings offer ever-new delights and present new challenges to their readers. This volume and its companion have been compiled to reflect something of the richness of this artistic world and the variety of responses it evokes. Here fourteen original essays by an international grouping of leading Nabokov specialists, scholars prominent in other fields, offer new insights into formative influences on his thought and the dominant agencies that structure his writing: emigration, the 'two worlds' theme and multilingualism.
