The Annotated Lolita is the definitive annotated text of the modern classic, written by one of the most punning and allusive writers in English since James Joyce. It assiduously glosses Lolita’s extravagant wordplay and its frequent literary allusions, parodies, and cross references.

“As with Joyce and Melville, the reader of Lolita attempts to arrive at some sense of its overall ‘meaning,’ while at the same time having to struggle, often page by page, with the difficulties posed by the recondite materials and rich, elaborate verbal textures. The main purpose of this edition is to solve such local problems and to show how they contribute to the total design of the novel
