Eye of the Bookholder – Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Lolita - Unknown Artist

“We all have such fateful objects — it may be a recurrent landscape in one case, a number in another — carefully chosen by the gods to attract events of specific significance for us: here shall John always stumble; there shall Jane’s heart always break.”

“Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.”

“He broke my heart. You merely broke my life.”

“I shall be dumped where the weed decays. And the rest is rust and stardust.”

 

Where images are uncredited, I was unable to trace them to their original designer. Should anyone know who the relevant artist is, please let me know and I will add a credit.

      1. I think he really makes the novel. His voice almost convinces you that his feelings about young girls is accurate, which is messed up. He also played HH in one of the film versions, but that wasn’t as good.
