Re: Boyd on Lolita, science, pattern
Dear List,

Among the new insights this article offers, I was very pleased to see Brian Boyd pursuing and capturing what I had merely groped at in my very first note to The Nabokovian entitled "Lord Byron's Pack" (1993) regarding Jean Farlow's dogs, Cavall and Melampus, in the early scene at Hourglass Lake in LOLITA. Their thematic import which I had intuited and was unable to intimate is now clear and traced throughout the whole novel.

You may be interested in this article in the latest American Scholar which links my interests in Nabokov and in evolutionary approaches to literature less unsuccessfully than I have managed previously:
