Lolita by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

9 editions published between 1960 and 1991 in 8 languages and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was published in 1955, Lolita immediately became a cause celebre because of the freedom and sophistication with which it handled the unusual erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Vladimir Nabokov's wise, ironic, elegant masterpiece owes its stature as one of the twentieth century's novels of record not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story almost shocking in its beauty and tenderness. Awe and exhilaration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in this account 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, but most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation

Tragedy of a rich and respectable Berlin art dealer and his passion for his young mistress
The enchanter by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nabokov described this novella, written in Paris in 1939 but only published twenty years later, as 'the first little throb of Lolita'. The plot is similar: a middle-aged man wedding an unattractive widow in order to indulge his paedophilic obsession with her daughter. However, The Enchanter has an utterly different atmosphere, as time, place and even names remain a mystery. Nabokov transforms his protagonist's attempts to lull his twelve-year-old step-daughter into a state of 'enchantment' into a graceful, chilling fairytale

In an unnamed dream country, the young man Cincinnatus C. is condemned to death by beheading for "gnostical turpitude," an imaginary crime that defies definition. Cincinnatus spends his last days in an absurd jail, where he is visited by chimerical jailers, an executioner who masquerades as a fellow prisoner, and by his in-laws, who lug their furniture with them into his cell. When Cincinnatus is led out to be executed, he simply wills his executioners out of existence: they disappear, along with the whole world they inhabit

Las constantes visitas de su carcelero, del director de la prisión, de la hija de éste, de su vecino de celda, de la joven mujer de Cincinnatus y su absurda familia no hacen más que acrecentar la sensación de angustia e impotencia del protagonista, que ve cómo su tiempo se acaba, como finaliza el tiempo de una representación teatral con personajes que parecen obedecer las pautas marcada por algún cruel y juguetón demiurgo
