[Fwd: RE: Calvino on Nabokov & Calvino]
"Nabokov . . . is really a great genius, one of the greatest
writers of the century and one of the persons in which I recognize
myself most."

Funny, I don't recognize someone so unguarded in Nabokov.

EDITOR's NOTE. On the other hand, humility was not especially
characteristic of either writer. As in many other cases, I have
difficulty seeing alleged similarities between VN's style and that of
other writers in spite of my admiration for their work.
