A masterpiece. One of the great works of art of our age (Independent)
There's no funnier monster in modern literature than poor, doomed Humbert Humbert. Going to hell in his company would always be worth the ride (Independent)
A great novel . . . It widens our own humanity (Guardian)
You read Lolita sprawling limply in your chair, ravished, overcome, nodding scandalized assent (Martin Amis Observer)
Nabokov's command of words, his joy in them, his comic and ecstatic use of them, makes reading his work such an intense joy (Daily Telegraph)
Lolita is more the shocking because it is both intensely lyrical and wildly funny ... a Medusa's head with trick paper snakes (Time)
Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita is one of the best-known novels of the 20th century: the controversial story of Humbert Humbert who falls in love with twelve year old Lolita, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range.
'Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of my tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.'
Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged, frustrated college professor. In love with his landlady's twelve-year-old daughter Lolita, he'll do anything to possess her. Unable and unwilling to stop himself, he is prepared to commit any crime to get what he wants.
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?
