Subject: who wrote the index
I cannot see Hazel as having a hand in writing any
portion of PF, whether foreword, poem, commentary or index. And I cannot
believe, as some have said, that John Shade wrote the index.
Dear Mr Brown,
I think that Nabokov himself claimed
that Shade wrote the index. Since it is clearly the work of Kinbote, I interpret
this as a hint that Kinbote and Shade are the same person.
