From Ron Rosenbaum:

 With Jansy, I too wonder about Chabon on PF. Doesn't he misread it entirely? If anyone "tucked" anything into John Shade's poem it was Kinbote who crammed the entire Zemblan fantasy into Shade's poem. Obviously VN created Kinbote, but also obviously did not share his mad misprision. I would, however, suggest (I do't think I'm alone) that Zembla does correspond in some ways with the lost homeland of VN. There is the anti-royalist coup in a "northern land" that forced the family of VN and (in his fantasy) Kinbote/Botkin to flee assassins.
