Sunday Sentence: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

Shallow lull in the dialogue, filled with some landscape.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
(See Also: Across America with Humbert and Lolita)


  1. Lolita is a classic by all means. Nabokov's language is beautiful and the story has a soul that compels the reader to empathise with the protagonist. The author has dealt with an unconventional and controversial subject with utmost dexterity. People who have a taste for great literature, especially from sexually conservative societies like India, must read this book.

  2. Nice! Is that referring to the next rather unimpressive banal line? Look Lo, at all those cows on that hillside?
