Dear Mr Iannarelli,

Pnin himself pops up at Goldsmith College in Pale Fire of course. And Iris Acht seems to be a mirror image of the original Sybil Vane, whose double is one of The Vane Sisters.

Others have thought that Hazel might be related to Dolores Haze - more evidence that Shade isn't the perfect Dad?
