Contents Nabokov and us -- Nabokov's Russian return, and retreat -- Imagining Nabokov -- On the way to the author -- Poet, genius, and hero -- Nabokov as the Pushkin of the twenty-first century
Summary Nabokov's exile to the West allowed him to leave behind the hermetic culture of Russia and partake in the extreme openness of 20th-century America. This study finds that this resulted in his works reinterpreting the traditions of Russian fiction shifting the emphasis from personal misery to the idea of forging one's own destiny
