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?
