Lolita Resources

Tragedies make me so happy
     Merely reading and reviewing Lolita was not enough for me...I had to go and write a 10-page senior project about the book, as well!  Writing this paper has obliged me to research and read Nabokov-centric literary criticism, interviews, annotations, and more. So if any of you are looking to learn more about Lolita, here is a list of resources I've used in the process of writing my paper. Enjoy! (Or don't...not everyone likes MLA citations.)

1991.

Criticism
