Ada Annotations 2-6 here and 2-4 on AdaOnline

Submitted by Brian_Boyd on Tue, 11/16/2021 - 19:36

Dear Nabokovians,

The Annotations for Ada Pt 2 Ch 6 (Ada's reunion with Van in Manhattan) are now available here on this website, a much shorter set of annotations than the last instalment. The notes have now reached more than 2/3 of the way through the novel.

And simultaneously the next instalment due for release on AdaOnline, Part 2 Chapter 4 (the lecture on dreams) is now online here

My thanks, for reading the notes to Pt 2 Ch 6 and for fertile suggestions, to two excellent close readers of Ada and my annotations, Stephen Blackwell and Diana Makhaldiani. All errors of omission or commission are mine; if you see any, please send them to me at

Brian Boyd
