I discovered Morse Code embedded within Lolita. With Nabokov's background
I'm sure he was aware of the symbolic use of Beethoven's 5th as allied
propaganda against Germany during WWII, but I have no proof of his
experience with Morse Code. In my opinion, this is another thread hidden
within the text -- it's so Nabokovian.

Does anyone have any knowledge about Nabokov's experience with Morse Code?
