Nabokov's 'Lolita' turns 50
Cornell celebrates the 50th anniversary of Vladimir Nabokov's novel
"Lolita," first published Sept. 15, 1955, in Paris, with a special
exhibit on display now through Oct. 17 in Kroch Library. Nabokov, a
professor of Russian literature at Cornell from January 1948 to
February 1959, completed the controversial novel in late 1953 but
initially failed to find a U.S. publisher. Banned around the world,
the book became a best seller and its author one of the 20th
century's most celebrated writers. For more information, visit[5].
