EDITOR'S NOTE. Martin Green's book cited
below is quite useful---as is his Children of the Sun--a study of British
modernism with many refs to VN.

Subject: Commedia dell'Arte & Nabokov
Going through some ballet books, I checked the index of The
Triumph of Pierrot, The Commedia dell'Arte and the Modern Imagination
and discovered that not only Diaghilev and Meyerhold but also Nabokov, Kuzmin,
Akhmatova get considerable note in the book. The authors are Martin Green and
John Swan, publisher Penn State U Press ('86, revised '93).
