Dear list,
Thanks to Alexey and others for pointing out to me lupine references in several works by VN. I am now trying to compile as many references to wolves as I can. I think I have covered PF, Lolita, Despair, and The Enchanter (plus one ref. to Little Red R-H in RLSK) but I would appreciate information regarding any more specific references to wolves (including Red R-H refs) in the rest of VN's works. If I end up using the info, I will of course acknowledge the gift with a gracious footnote. I am particularly interested in VN's use of the wolf as a figure for a sexual predator, as in The Enchanter (thanks, Alexey).
Responses can be given off-list. I promise I will report back here with a full list once I have compiled it.
