EDITOR'S COMMENT. Jay Livingston's <LIVINGSTON@saturn.montclair.edu>
observation is well taken. I devote a page or so to reviewing Mann's use
of the incest theme (and VN's atttitude toward it) in my _Worlds in
Regression_ volume.
Thomas Mann may not have been Nabokov's favorite author, but his "Blood of the
Walsungs" antedates "Ada" by several decades. And of course there's Hamlet's
accusations of incest.
