Poet and pervert, Humbert becomes obsessed by 12 year-old Lolita and seeks to possess her, first carnally and then artistically. This is Nabokov’s best known novel which brought him worldwide fame and was later made into a film.
Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged, fastidious college professor. He also likes little girls. And none more so than Lolita, who he’ll do anything to possess. 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?
