Re: SIGHTING: Vere, Turk, VN, and WS
My thanks to M. Marcus and S. E. Sweeney for this interesting post. It's
quite scattered
but I have been amazed by the Shakespearean connection exposed: "Turkish
Trauatis on a console"
is a composite Vere-Hamlet allusion: Vere as Turk, Hamlet subjected to a
series of traumatic events,
Cardanus' On Consolation."

I had recently completed reading Samuel Schuman's "Nabokov's Shakespeare"
and found it very impressive.
This post indicates that in Nabokov's novels there are many Shakespearean
connections still waiting
to be discovered.

My best,
