From the Publisher
Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound
in Lolita, Nabokov''s most famous and
controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert
Humbert''s obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet
Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a
hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of
postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as
outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.
