Dear all,

My name is Flora Keersmaekers. I'm a student at Ghent University in
Belgium. Normally, I will obtain my degree of Master in Comparative Modern
Literature in June. Right now I'm writing my graduation paper on Vladimir
Nabokov's lectures.

I am also preparing my request to write a doctorate (Ph.D.) paper about
Vladimir Nabokov. My idea is to compare the lectures to other important
critical writings of Nabokov's contemporaries. Texts of the main
representatives of the New Criticism, the neo-Aristotelians, Marxist
Criticism,... which were written around the same decennia in which Nabokov
wrote his lectures, will be compared to the lectures.

I would be really grateful if it would be possible for you to help me
with my research. If there are any important/interesting/... articles,
books or any other documentation about Nabokov and his critic-
contemporaries I should know about, please send me an e-mail.

Thank you very much for your interest and answer.

Best wishes

Flora Keersmaekers

PS Please excuse me for my faults in English, it's not my mother
tongue (that's Dutch).
