Weekly Read-Along—November 28, 2008: Good Readers, Good Writers

Material for the Stout-Hearted Reader to Ruminate

♦ Essays, Lectures & Speeches ♦

     

 

 

Vladimir Nabokov (1899 – 1977) was a Russian-American author most famous for his novel, Lolita.  His works are noted for their complex plots and clever word-play.  He immigrated to the U.S. in 1940 after living in Western Europe for many years.  He taught at Wellesley College and then Cornell University.

 

This week’s text, Nabokov’s Good Readers, Good Writers (~1948 ) is from a lecture he gave at Cornell University.  It was published posthumously in the book, Lectures on Literature.
