Re: [QUERY] "Scenes from the Life of a Double Monster"
For a psychoanalytic reading of this story, which argues that it expresses
various anxieties about VN's relationship with Sergei, see my essay "The
Small Furious Devil: Memory in 'Scenes from the Life of a Double Monster,'"
in *A Small Alpine Form: Studies in Nabokov's Short Fiction*, ed. Charles
Nicol and Gene Barabtarlo (New York: Garland, 1993), pp. 193-216). I have
just discovered that a copy of my essay is available online
