Thank you to organizers of Hidden Nabokov Conference + Addendum from Stephen Blackwelll

Submitted by dana_dragunoiu on Mon, 06/20/2022 - 18:19

I write to express my heartfelt gratitude to the three organizers of the Hidden Nabokov Conference that began this past Wednesday with a sparkling, brilliant plenary talk by Priscilla Meyer and ended with an achingly beautiful plenary talk by artist Shelley Jackson. Though the conference continues online on Wednesday, June 29, an expression of gratitude feels appropriate at this juncture.

Nabokov and Germany - On a book entitled "Vladimir Nabokovs Eigenwelt"

Submitted by andriej_kotin on Wed, 05/18/2022 - 12:15

Dear All,

 

my book about Nabokov and Germany - "Vladimir Nabokovs Eigenwelt. Deutsche Bezugspunkte einer russischen Künstlerexistenz" - was published on 16.05.2022 by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht. 

https://www.vandenhoeck-ruprecht-verlage.com/detail/index/sArticle/57629

I hope, it will find interest among Nabokov admirers who speak/read (in) German.

 

Kind regards,

Andrey Kotin

 

Ada Annotations to 2.7 and AdaOnline to 2.5

Submitted by Brian_Boyd on Wed, 05/18/2022 - 00:04

Dear Nabokovians,

 

A new instalment of the Ada annotations, 2.7, including a fart joke you may have missed, is now available on the website here. That makes 50 chapters—oof! And simultaneously, 2.5 now becomes available on AdaOnline, a long and dense chapter with many illustrations.

 

Thanks once again to Steve Blackwell and Diana Makhaldiani for meticulous corrections and astute suggestions.
