That Humbert and Lolita Meetup on Metachat June 2, 2010 11:32 AM   Subscribe

Just a quickie reminder that our Mefi book club discussion of Lolita and the Hungerford lectures on the book is coming up on June 15 on Meta Chat. Thanks to redsparkler for suggesting the Annotated Lolita, a great resource. Here again is the link to the first of the Prof. Hungerford lectures.

The transcript and media links on the second linked page don't seem to work for me.

Try this link instead, then. Lolita lectures are number 5.

Small request: I'm constantly stunned by some of the words Nabakov either creates or digs up or polishes up and makes perfect again and I'm making a list as I go along wanted to ask that people make a note of great words they came (come across) and we can compare lists.

Anyhow, I'm having a blast and am about halfway through. So rich and satisfying. Burp.
