Vladimir Nabokov held the unique distinction of being one of the most important writers of the twentieth century in two separate languages, Russian and English. Known for his verbal mastery and bold plots, Nabokov fashioned a literary legacy that continues to grow in significance. This 2005 volume offers a concise and informative introduction into the author's fascinating creative world. Specially commissioned essays by distinguished scholars illuminate numerous facets of the writer's legacy, from his early contributions as a poet and short-story writer to his dazzling achievements as one of the most original novelists of the twentieth century. Topics receiving fresh coverage include Nabokov's narrative strategies, the evolution of his world-view, and his relationship to the literary and cultural currents of his day. The volume also contains valuable supplementary material such as a chronology of the writer's life and a guide to further critical reading.

Here's what you say about us...

"The breadth of these essays--some have titles as expansive as 'Nabokov's Worldview'--does not negatively impact their depth.
Though the Cambridge Companion does not always break through the density of Nabokov's art, these scholars to describe its complexity exquisitely." - Review of Contemporary Fiction Theodore Louis McDermott

"I recommend it to anyone interested in Nabokov."
