Writing Like Nabokov [Charles Mudede]

All Levels. One of the best novelists in our language is Vladimir Nabokov who began writing in English in the second half of his career. His novels have exerted a huge influence on writers like Martin Amis and Zadie Smith. What they found in his words, his sentences, his constructions is a mind that’s very much in love with language itself. We will look closely at passages in his two greatest novels in English: Lolita and Pale Fire. It will be important to have read these books before class begins, and once it begins, we will not only get lost in his language but figure out ways of making it our own.
