Lolita: A Janus Textby Lance Olsen
In this lively and discerning study of Vladimir Nabokov's complex tale of sexual obsession and immorality, Lance Olsen clarifies Lolita's many seeming contradictions. Using the Roman god Janus, who gazes in two directions at once, as a guiding image of entry into the text, Olsen explores the reasons why the novel is at once depressing and witty, didactic and immoral, modern and postmodern.
