Vladimir Nabokov

Date of Birth:



United States


'Lolita', a single word that ropes in sin, sex and shame, is a delectable creation by the artful hands of Vladimir Nabokov. One of the best novels of the early twentieth century, this simple title carries a lot of weight, but this isn't all. Nabokov's best pieces like 'Pale Fire', parody 'The Real Life of Sebastian Knight' and novels 'Bend Sinister' and 'Speak. Memory' (his memoir) encloses carefully structured storyline, dramatic descriptions and experimental thinking. Vladimir was a Russian-born American fiction writer, poet, teacher, political analyst, entomologist (butterfly expert) and a highly acclaimed novelist. At National Book Award for Fiction, he was a finalist seven times. He began his career as a teacher and crossword developer. He taught boxing, tennis and designed crossword puzzles for kids in his spare time. Vladimir was a teacher of languages at Stanford, California. Later, he joined as a professor of literature at Wellesley College, Massachusetts. Being a multi-talented person, Nabokov was famous for his plays, funny sketches for 'New Yorker', criticism and stirring short stories. His research in entomology, especially the discovery of "Nabokov's wood nymph" made him famous at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University. Nabokov has so much talent that it's unbelievable. His life is an inspiring lesson for today's youths. We have excerpted Vladimir Nabokov’s quotes from his works, books, interviews and life. Here is a collection of Vladimir Nabokov quotes about love, life, poetry, writing, books, memory and much more.
