Lolita Essay Accepted

Nabokov_sam-1

I have not posted for a while because I have been involved in writing an article on Lolita for a handbook on affect and literature commissioned by Palgrave. Today I got word the article, “Affect and Fascism in Lolita,” was accepted. I am still doing a few odds and ends of research (there’s time to add a note here or there), but basically it is done.

I am excited. First, the handbook project will be the first time, as far as I know, that many different branches of inquiry into affect and literature will be brought together, including affect theory, cognitive science, psychology, phenomenology, and philosophy. Second, I believe I have noticed things about Nabokov’s novel that no one else has, things I look forward to sharing once the handbook is published. Third, I learned a ton about Nabokov, Lolita, affect theory, psychology, and cognitive science.

And finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel now. I am looking forward to getting back to creative writing!
