The Annotated Lolita: Revised and Updated

The Annotated Lolita: Revised and Updated - Vladimir Nabokov, Alfred Appel Lolita is one of my favorite books for its precision prose, famously unreliable narrator and multitude of allusions and wordplays. The annotated version is great because it explains all these allusions and word games and allows the reader to dig into the construction of the novel to a greater degree than is otherwise sometimes possible outside of a classroom. I found the annotations enriched my understanding and appreciation of this literary tour de force tremendously.
