Body
EDITOR's NOTE. I have only glanced at this but it might be of interest
to Dolorologists. It is a series of reflections on LOLITA in the context
of the Marc Dutroux affair in Belgium in 1996 which, inter alia, was one
of stumbling blocks to the release of Adrian Lynes's LOLITA film. The
article appeared in the Russian journal LOGOS. If the abstract paragraph
interests you, I have provided the web address to the full text.

Mihail Mayackii,

Chitat' ⌠Lolitu■ v epohu Dyutru

Otnyud' ne sluchainym byl dlya menya vybor etoi tyazheloi temy
dlya kollokviuma, sobravshego zdes' ≈ i spasibo za eto ego
organizatoram ≈ mnogih staryh druzei, s kotorymi my vypili pud liha, a
zaodno i oluchili zaryad neissyakaemoi bodrosti v sovetskuyu epohu.
Lish' gotovya doklad, ya ponyal, chto moi interes, moya pochti
ocharovannost' aferoi Dyutru[1] nosit gluboko nostal'gicheskii harakter.
Moya reakciya na informaciyu s samogo nachala, s avgusta 1996 g., byla
skeptichnoi. Splotit' (i obut') celuyu naciyu krov'yu chetyreh devochek
≈ eto, konechno, chisto kommunisticheskii kunstshtyuk. Buduchi zadet i
s drugoi storony, ibo ya v strogom smysle slova pedo-fil, t. e. lyublyu
detei (kak to, chego ne imeyu), ya byl obizhen i za lyubimogo avtora,
vokrug kotorogo stali mel'kat' rzhavye mechi i shity 30-letnei davnosti.
Obidevshis', ya perechital ⌠Lolitu■ ≈ i obnaruzhil v nei porazitel'nyi
arsenal sredstv dlya artikulyacii moego smutnogo nedoveriya k afere
Dyutru.
