Nymph Nymphet Nymphetiuette Nymphology Nymphism I will never think of 12 year old girls the same way There s a stain on my brain The power of this book is that it s creepy and taboo but the pedophilia and incest is so damn plausible There s a criminal upsetting proclivity of the subject matter but the whole thing is oiled with reason SAY IT AINT SO It s deviant ueer puerile and yet ever so human darkly human perverted in the corner Lolita lingers in my mind like an accidental glance at the mid day sun I believe this book will have a permanent effect on me I m thankful but cautious It s a book that I experienced not so much as read There are 2 components to this book that radically affected me the writing and the subject matterThe WritingI have never read another book written uite like Lolita The writing has depth layer upon layer strata against strata texture among texture It s a palimpsest of clues and anagrams and reference The author has absolute command of the English and French and Latin language And yet among the 4 dollar words and bourgeoisie lit crit Nabakov plays with the language He invents words He hyphenates them He nymphorizes them It s a gamboling and frolicking story in the rarefied air of an unrestrained unapologetic and unadulterated polyhistoric writer It s subtle and raw at the same time it s pure Pure like what happens in your neighborhood behind closed doors just before an arrest He incorporates a dry brittle sense of humor even a bit of sass He taunts the reader to follow He dares the reader to like and enjoy Humbert Humbert He pokes you in the eye He scandalizes you but with a pen that is at once brutal and sensitive but always careful There are echoes of Joyce and PoeThe story is a retrospective fromfromfrom where What Prison Ostensibly And yet there hasn t been a trial yet no judgement Nabakov tantalizes you ladies and gentlemen of the jury to pass judgement on Humbert Humbert yourself Are you willing Or will you just turn your head wincingThe writing is breathless elouent exacting alluring inventive sexy pleading conceited lurid savory languid and slyly self deprecating The author is flagrant unapologetic a dandy even He whiffles the writing in so many little stylistic flourishes He writes sentences and paragraphs in ways that I would never have guessed to try It s insanely periodic writing I grab my head akimbo in pure awe of the sentences I peeked at an annotated version for 20 pages at a local big box book store Wow there s so many levels to this writing of so much I was ignorant Did you know that under the shocking story of pedophilia Nabakov is carrying on a paper chase with clues on almost every page Yes there s a whole other plane of conversation hidden below the written words grammatically semantically nymphatically They re buried in the french words the double entendres the onomatopoeia the puns the metonymy the symbols the rhyming the nymphventions Palimpsest ladies and gentlemen The Subject MatterWe all know Lolita is supposed to be shocking revolting even many people not able to finish it Titillating serious fiction about pedophilia is the clear edge of the literary envelope something banned in many different communities even today At this particular time in our democracy as one of the freest countries in the world and the most progressive we champion human rights and place a huge penalty on crimes against minors In this spirit we are supposed to decry and detest the subject matter in this book and lambast the author People are arrested and put on community rosters for crimes against minors This 300 page book chronicles a crime against a minor Nabakov makes this an even difficult sexual arrangement for his readers to contemplate because the 12 year old is an eager compliant and willing partner to the crimeIn Lolita the protagonist is a criminal and his actions unforgivable BUT if there was any method to his madness it would have to be thisHumans share a cephalization process in common with most vertebrates We developed cerebral hemispheres several million years ago progressing beyond our closest ancestors and recently than that humans learned how to use the cerebral cortex to reason judge cognate and intuit But hundreds of millions of years ago way down the taxonomic branch we shared with other vertebrates a common mesencephalon and rhombencephalon the midbrain and hindbrain Tucked up under our marvelous modern cortex the midbrain and hindbrain called the brain stem are comprised of the pons cerebellum and yes the MEDULLA OBLONGATA These are ancient compact organs They are the most animal part of our brains They are in control of the lower order mental functions the basic mechanistic functions upon which everything else depends You can lose part of your cortex and still function as a human You cannot however lose any of your brain stem without losing basic animal function The brain stem is innately integral to lifeIt s from this midbrain we get reflex instinct coordinated movement sex drive fight or flight and a whole range of metabolic regulation for all organs in the rest of the body The impulses the input the direction the priority originating in these Mesozoic Era brain organs are powerful The cerebral cortex would be remiss to block an impulse from this deep ancient brain even if it could stop the impulse in time It s difficult for our human cortex to constrain an electrical input from the animal brain stem What comes from the stem is automatically life sustaining life preserving and high priority The cortex usually plays catch up to brain stem messagingBut humans do it all the time It s called reason judgement cognition and conscience It s called being civilized It s keeping in check our vertebrate impulsesEnter Humbert Humbert He suffers an atavistic urge to procreate with young nymphets This is a social problem driven and turbocharged by the midbrain He understands his cortex understands that the culture of the late 1940s and early 1950s find this taboo and perverse definitely criminal But our poor Humberto doesn t care He reasons with his midbrain and pleads to us the jury In the not too distant past within our own Western culture and certainly in modern cultures of tribal peoples 12 year old girls are ready to mate Lolita has already menstruated and had sex with a boy her age In many cultures of the world Lolita would be given up as a wife in exchange for dowries of cattle land political favor The whole story then brings this American taboo to a moral uestion And its a uestion that you modern citizen find uncomfortable like I doEven disturbing Nabakov makes Humby Humberty a caring loving protective paternal figure that wishes Lolita the best in life There is no direct lewd reference to the act of sex nothing salacious nothing pornographic No that would be too easy to damn Humbo to the devil Instead Nabakov explores the possibility that real love may exist betwain the tweenI m not too happy to report a phenomenon that happens to men of sexual capacity always and forever It s an impulse from the midbrain and it pushes through all that civilization ing It s happened to all men I know because it s been a topic of conversation in many different social settings to which I was eye witness Take for example a young woman of 16 or 17 years From afar I see a body in bikini I see a tight athletic form I see a bronzed body wearing clothes much too revealing and immediately the midbrain excites the male sex drive Upon closer approach I m horrified to see that this nubile figure is much too young for me Am I perverted Criminal thoughts I don t think so The midbrain wants to ensure successful mating and for hundreds of millions of years sexual mating to be maximally effective and to outlast environmental exigencies was driven down to the earliest age that could conceive offspring So that dastardly urge men experience around cheerleaders or girls at the beach that look as healthy and trim as fresh gazelles it s not right dammit and most of us keep it in check but there it is and it s nagging and I wish it away But no I think it will remain and haunt me at times like it haunts all men your men your brothers and your fathers and your lovers I look away in disgust of myself call myself a dirty old man whatever it takes to recalibrate my thoughts It happens occasionally that oogling but I keep it in check But if you think society has civilized itself away from this midbrain urge type into google the words list of sexual predators in my area You will see a Mesozoic characteristic come alive note to self this paragraph may need to be rewordeda very good chance most people will misconstrue itas if I was pardoning the midbrain urgeor worse that I pardon Humbert Humbertnot the case at allSo that s why at the beginning I said this story was so damn plausible and upsetting and oiled with reason and darkly human Pedophilia and incest has occurred is occurring and will always occur That beast of a midbrainA very important read for 20th century literatureNew words incondite contretemps swain alembic tombal purblind dulcet treacle edusively viatic selenian

I wasn t even going to write a review of Lolita after finishing it because honestly how many reviews does this classic need That is until I started pocking around and reading what others have to say about it Many reactions to this book are puzzling to me In this world of Jerry Sanduskys and such there are still people who find this erotic who in the end feel some kind of compassion toward the narrator who think that Lolita was the one who seduced and manipulated poor Humbert Well I beg to differ Lolita is as erotic as Speak is pornographic As for favorable opinions of Humbert I guess it is possible this effect can be attributed to Nabokov s mastery of deception Clearly Humbert still half a century after the novel s publication manages to fool readers and himself into believing that he is a dedicated caring lover wounded and changed by an early tragic romance Only occasionally does the truth bleed through his self delusion Lolita s wistful glance at a child sitting on his father s lap a simple act that is forever sallied by Humbert s filth her disinterest in life her resignation to satisfy him for pocket money and permission to participate in a school play No Humbert did not fool me into feeling sorry for him On a technical level Lolita deserves full 5 stars the language the wit the world play I don t think I ve ever read anything like this before But emotionally this look into a pedophile s psyche is so disgusting I can t uite bring myself to rate it so Humbert is so sickly real to me with his apologies justifications of his behavior cowardice sob stories and bending of reality how does an author create someone like this How did Nabokov get such an intimate knowledge of someone so despicable
