Re: Death of the Author
Au quite Contraire, cher Maxim. Many of us are babes on the fringe of the
vast Nabokovian corpus, and welcome pointers to relevant, knowledgeable

Gnostic Gospel of Thomas:
(33) Jesus said, "Preach from your housetops that which you will hear in
your ear. For no one lights a lamp and puts it under a bushel, nor does he
put it in a hidden place, but rather he sets it on a lampstand so that
everyone who enters and leaves will see its light."
