Re: Nabokov and L. Trilling
I have always found Trilling's article deplorable: a paradigm case of
psychoanalytically corrupted misunderstanding of, and debasement of, the concept
of "love".

I didn't find the sound quality of the Nabokov-Trilling conversation

Trilling, but the sound quality is prohibitive. Does anyone know of a
source with good sound quality? Did the Nabokovs and the Trillings see
anything of each other socially?
