Re: Taking Humbert and Quilty Singularly
Sorry Carolyn, sorry Jansy, you are both sensitive and intelligent people,
but this seems cloud cuckoo land.

Carolyn Kunin [to JM]: But I'm impressed that you suspected Humbert's
innocence - it never occurred to me until just a few weeks ago, in relation to
the accusation against Colette (de Juvenal).I;ve been re-reading Lolita
since I wrote in - and I am more and more convinced that Humbert in fact is
Lolita's biological father...I hope others will join us in this quest for the
guilty party.

Jansy Mello: I needed you to say that HH might be "innocent," because my
suspicions were hazy and not actually formulated (most of his adventures
suggested instances of erotic fantasies migled with paranoia, idealization,
wishful thinking ... and that's as far as I went).
Now you say that Humbert is Lolita's biological father? How come?
