Hamrit, Jacqueline. Deconstructing Lolita. 2022

Bibliographic title
Deconstructing Lolita
Publication year

This book explores how one can read and teach literature with Jacques Derrida through a series of articles on Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita, ranging from 2003 to 2017. All of them resort to the French philosopher’s works as a basis for the analysis of the different chosen literary issues such as structure, genre, character, or interpretation, for example.

The book addresses both Nabokovian specialists and students of Nabokov’s works, and could, thereby, be used as teaching guidelines not only for Lolita, but also for those interested in deconstruction.
