Re: CK's response to JF which nobody but he will read
Not so. I'm reading all this with great interest, but don't feel confident
to comment yet. Except that the multiple personality theory seems to contradict
VN's positive statements in Strong Opinions about Shade's
emotional-spiritual life (doesn't sound like what you would say about one half of a split) and
about Kinbote's being a madman who will kill himself shortly after finsihing
work on the book. Also, hasn't DN told us that VN denied the single-author
theory of "Pale Fire"?

Incidentally, now that I have supplied Dmitri with the evidence he
requested, I should be grateful to know his present considered opinion on the putative
line 1000 of "Pale Fire".
