RES: [NABOKV-L] the missing quote
Former Posting: footnote - I tried to find another related quote (namely,
the full paragraph for ""In a first-rate piece of fiction, the real clash is
not between the characters, but between the author and the world").and got
to an information which might be useful here ."An interesting related topic
to the difficulty of mingling souls in Nabokov's fiction is Stephen
Blackwell's discussion of the "interpenetration of souls" that is the ideal
"author-reader interaction," an idea that Blackwell argues is shared by
Nabokov and Iulii Aikhenvald." (Blackwell 29-36). Footnote to ch.12, p.191
in "Nabokov's Permanent Mystery: The Expression of Metaphysics in His Work"
by David S. Rutledge.

Present Posting: "In the third section of chapter 14 of Speak, Memory
...Nabokov reminds us that 'competition in chess problems is not really
between White and Black but between the composer and the hypothetical solver
(just as in a first-rate work of fiction the real clash is not between the
characters but between the author and the world').
