Subject: PF epigraph
I'm a little bit confused, may be I missed an
earlier discussion in the list...
I wonder why there are doubts about who put the
epigraph to Pale Fire. In the commentary to the Russian edition I've read that
it could be either Kinbot, or Shade. Why ask at all? Epigraphs usually belong to
the author himself. We never ask who put the words 'to Vera' at the beginning of
every novel, and epigraph is almost the same thing.
If someone has explored this question more or less
thoroughly, please, let me know.
