The sexuality of Humberts final encounter with Quilty has been fully
commented on. But I noticed interesting similarities between:

"We fell to wrestling again. We rolled all over the floor, in
each other's arms....I felt suffocated as he rolled over me. I
rolled o;ver him. We rolled over me. They rolled over him. We
rolled over us." p 298-9


"We interweaved like serpents....We were Mongolian tumblers....
adalucindas....Our heads clamped in such odd combinations...."
Ada p 375
