Lectures on Literature

5.0 out of 5 stars Mainly for fans and students of tha Nabokovian oeuvre, 3 Jan. 2001
This review is from: Lectures on Literature (Paperback)
Vladimir Nabokov's approach to European literary masterpieces is both funny and enlightening. Of special interest for the uninitiated into the Nabokovian world view are the essays "Good Readers and Good Writers" and "The Art of Literature and Commonsense". But beware: if you want to read a straight academic approach to the writers treated in this book you have chosen the wrong book. Some of Nabokov's comments are fantastic, especially his reading of Flaubert and Proust are exceptionally good, but they are not wissenschaft in the traditional manner. These lectures say more about Nabokov the writer than they say about other writers.
