In a whimsical Gallimard "folio", titled "Leurs yeux se rencontrèrent...( the most beautiful first encounters in literature)," about the magical moment when two pairs of eyes meet, I came across a description of Humbert's vision of Lolita among Charlotte's lilies.

The chapters were divided as "Rencontres Insolites" (Dumas, les trois mousquetaires; Jean Giono's le hussard sur le toit, Collin Higgins' Hardold amd Maude...); "Quand ça comence mal" (Proust, Un amour de Swann; Aragon,Aurèlien...) "Espoir?" ( Baudelaire's a une passante;R.Matheson; Marguerite Duras; A.Baricco's Soie...);"Coup de Foudre" (G. de Lorris's Le roman de la rose;Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet;Racine's Phèdre; Hemingway's for whom he bell tolls, P.Sollers...).

QUIZ: What was the chapter chosen for HH's "Tout cela est ravissant, tout à fait ravissant!" ?
