Description


In Pale Fire, Nabokov offers a cornucopia of deceptive pleasures: a 999-line poem by the reclusive genius John Shade; an adoring foreword and commentary by Shade's self-styled Boswell, Dr. Charles Kinbote; a darkly comic novel of suspense, literary idolatry, one-upmanship, and political intrigue.

"This centaur work, half poem, half prose...is a creation of perfect beauty, symmetry, strangeness, originality and moral truth.

Pretending to be a curio, it cannot disguise the fact that it is one of the great works of art of this century." --Mary McCarthy
