To my shame the anagram in my previous post is incorrect. Vek (century)
should be a wee bit longer:



nabelo + ochko + vvek = Nabokov + chelovek



Or the whole thing can be rearranged as follows:



nabelo + kovcheg + vek + Yorik + Lolita = Nabokov + chelovek + geroy + lik +
tail/lait/Atli

nabelo + kolichestvo + trava = Nabokov + Lolita + Vera + chest



vvek - ever

kovcheg - ark

Yorik - Yorick in Russian spelling

geroy - hero

lik - obs., face; cf. Lik (1939), a story by VN

lait - Fr., milk

Atli - one of the names of Thor; a character in the Poetic Edda

kolichestvo - quantity

trava - grass

vrata - obs., gates



The English chest needs one more letter (the soft sign) to become Russian
chest' (honor).
