Are there any feminist critiques of Lolita?

Martin Striz

EDITOR's RESPONSE. Oh, yes. Lots. The best known is: Kauffman, Linda.
"Framing Lolita: Is There a Woman in the Text?" In
Harold Bloom ed., Lolita (New York: Chelsea House, 1993), pp.
149-168. [Also in Yeager, Patricia and Beth Kowaleski-Wallace
(eds.), Refiguring the Father: New Feminist Readings of
Patriarchy (Carbondale: University of Illinois Press, 1989), pp.
131-152.] Checking the Zembla critical bibliography will provide others.
