Product Description

Lolita, a novel by Vladimir Nabokov was published in 1955 and is one of the finest novels of the 20th century. The story is a bit controversial which revolves around Humbert Humbert. He is in love with a 12 year old girl named Dolores Haze and calls her privately Lolita. Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged professor going through mid-life crisis, who falls for the daughter of his landlady. He has become very possessive about her and can do anything to have her. So over possessive he is that he can commit any crime in order to get her. Is this love or a level of insanity? Is he a frustrated soul or a monster? This book is a stunning work of art of today’s times. Lolita will keep you glued to your chairs till the very end. It involves elements of comedy and is very expressive in its approach.
Lolita is also to a large extent shocking in its approach as it is passionate and comic at the same time. It’s a modern-day fiction work written beautifully by Vladimir Nabokov.
Humbert Humbert has been referred to as a “funny monster” of modern-day literature. The book has been adapted not only in movies but also Opera, Ballet and Broadway musical.
