Lolita

Vladimir Nabokov

From Shelf: The 100 best novels written in English: the full list (Robert McCrum, The Guardian Dec 2021)

Poet and pervert, Humbert Humbert becomes obsessed by twelve-year-old Lolita and seeks to possess her, first carnally and then artistically, out of love, 'to fix once for all the perilous magic of nymphets'. Is he in love or insane? A silver-tongued poet or a pervert? A tortured soul or a monster? Or is he all of these?
