QUERY: Transparent Things (fwd)
From: joseph piercy <j9250308@wlv.ac.uk>

Dear Nabokovians,
Could anyone help me with the reference to Wittgenstein in R's
"Tralatitions" ? (chapter 23 of "Transparent Things"). Sometime ago I
came across a partial explanation of it in David Rampton's book on Nabokov
(I think, although I could well be mistaken). However, I failed to make
note of the relationship to Wittgenstein and do not have the text
available to check it out. Any information at all (alternative
explanations etc) would be most welcome.

Many Thanks in advance.
