Re: Albion
AS: Jansy tells me that I should have mentioned that Albion is the name of the island of Great Britain.
JM: For the benefit of foreign readers, I mean... During my childhood "Albion" was merely a brand of "gomma arabica" used at school.

btw: There's a mistake in my last posting on VN and R.Jacobson. The word "Formalist" was missing.
Cf. Michael Glynn's "Vladimir Nabokov: Bergsonian and Russian Formalist Influences in his novels" (palgrave,macmillan,2007)
