JM: Flabby, helpless old man? I always thought Humbert was in his forties.
Humbert was 36 or 37 when he met the 12-year-old Lolita. He is not even the "middle-aged" man he is usually said, by careless readers, to be. Their ages are almost the same as those of Herr K. and Dora in Freud's case study.
