Curso de literatura europea by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lo largo de casi dos décadas, Vladimir Nabokov impartió en las universidades de Wellesley y Cornell unos cursos de literatura, tan apasionados como apasionantes, que se convirtieron en leyenda. Fredson Bowers los reconstruyó a partir de los apuntes del maestro. Nabokov, lejos de generalidades y teorizaciones, enseña a leer a sus alumnos, a acariciar los detalles y a apasionarse con la lectura a fondo de los grandes de la literatura europea: Jane Austen, Dickens, Stevenson, Proust, Flaubert, Joyce o Kafka. Vladimir Nabokov (San Petersburgo, 1899-Montreux, Suiza, 1977) está considerado uno de los más grandes escritores del siglo XX, en especial por su novela Lolita (1955)

As Robin's time in Berlin unfolds, it becomes clear that nothing is what it seems. A shooting, a kidnapping, encounters with pimps and teenage whores, druggings, police interrogations, and torture arise in a mysterious, ever-more-dreamlike sequence, as an unnamed interlocutor points out inconsistencies in Robin's own story
