Lolita
Lolita
"Lolita" is a novel about a middle-aged man, Humbert Humbert, who falls in love with a 12 years old girl, Dolores Haze, his "Lolita". Humbert reconizes her as a "nymphet", a "girl between the ages of 9 to 12 years old, not a human, but a nymphet, with diabolic nature".
The Book
Lolita is a novel by Vladimir Nabokov, written in English and published in 1955 in Paris and 1958 in New York. After its publication, "Lolita" attained a classic status, becoming one of the best-known and most controversial examples of 20th century literature.
Curiosities
• Edgar Allan Poe's Annabel "Leight"
The Movie "Lolita": 1962
Directed by Stanley Kubrick, it was the first adaptation for the big screen. It starred Peter Sellers as Humbert, James Mason, Shelley Winters, and Sue Lyon as Lolita. Even Kubrick removing most of it's erotism, the movie caused controversy, because of it's provocative subject.
The Movie "Lolita": 1997
Adrian Lyne was the second movie director to adapt "Lolita". Starrying Jeremy Irons as Humbert, Melanie Griffith, Frank Langella and Dominique Swain as Lolita. This adaptation was a lot distant from Kubrick's and much closer to the book's history. It shows a more childish and "naughty" Dolores, with much more explicit erotic scenes.
• "Lolita" as a inspiration
• Debate: Humbert as a pedophile or Lolita as a sexually precocious girl
