Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov, Craig Raine

And the rest is rust and stardust.

 

Vladimir Nabokov

 

Vladimir Nabokov (born April 22, 1899) grew up trilingual, fully fluent in Russian, English, and French. He translated his own books and was fond of linguistic humor. He inserted "himself" in Lolita as Vivian Darkbloom, an anagram of his name.
