Re: Michael Maar's evidence on the Lolita/Lichberg issue.For what it is
worth, I have not in the least been convinced by Mr Maar's endeavours. I
view it as an addition to that long list of articles striving to point out
"possible sources" for VN's novel either in his readings or putative
leanings. For me, the true riddle is these uncessant critical attempts that
seem to overlook or underrate this writer's genius.

What makes VN´s putative use to certain aspects of minor Lichberg´s opus
so disturbing?

Dear Jansy,

I have been vainly waiting for the cries of outrage to erupt against the
publication of Michael Maar's book on Nabokov and the von Lichberg "Lolita."
I'm still waiting. Does this silence mean the critics no longer care? or
that they have become used to the idea? or that they even accept the
possibility? or that the discouraging P-word hasn't reared it's ugly head?

I have sent Michael Maar my congratulations on the publication of his book
and wish him well with his endeavors.

Carolyn
