long story short,

  • in the event that you do read “lolita”
  • read the foreword
  • and the afterword
  • consider context and intent
  • get the annotated version if u want
  • and pay attention to the text.

There’s an episode in the first or second season of SVU where Dolores murders HH’s creepy ass. Yes good. 

Also read the foreword because it’s where the resolution of the plot actually punches you in the gut. 

i don’t tend to read forewords because i don’t want to start a book with someone else’s feelings about a book, but i guess i’ll do that o_o

mind you i’m not 100% confident i actually FINISHED lolita? like the last thing i remember is her being pregnant and humbert being all “she looks too grown up my boner is wilting :(“

i have genuinely used people’s feelings about lolita as a barometer for whether i want to have anything to do with them like:

DO YOU THINK HUMBERT HUMBERT IS A CREEPY PEDO RAPIST AND THAT WHAT HE DID WAS UNJUSTIFIED AND UNJUSTIFIABLE? PLEASE SELECT FROM THE FOLLOWING:

  • YES
  • FUCK YES
  • I AM NOT WELCOME IN YOUR HOUSE SO I’M GOING TO AWKWARDLY LEAVE NOW

the foreword was actually written by nabokov as a commentary on the text as a genuine memoir, because he’s just great like that

here are a few things that nabokov put in to let us know that what humbert humbert did was not okay (spoilers obv):

  • dolores cries herself to sleep every night — every single night
  • she never ever ever responds the way HH wants her to — she endures what he does to her but gets no enjoyment whatsoever
  • she refers to what he does as rape and perversion
  • humbert acknowledges himself that she stays with him because she has nowhere else to go
  • humbert doesn’t know this because he’s writing in prison, but in the foreword we learn that dolores dies at age 19 giving birth to a stillborn baby girl, which is clearly meant to be a result of years of abuse (maybe not literally but this is the sort of on-the-nose thing even great authors will do to drive home a point WHICH APPARENTLY PEOPLE STILL MISS)

this is not fucking romantic in any way shape or form and anyone who thinks it is needs serious help because holy shit

Also it’s been a while since I read Lolita but my own personal fridge horror was…

new aesthetic: surreal pop punk

your shorts are glowing and are made of a material not known to this world. your vans die and regenerate every night. every band does covers of gregorian chants. your bangs extend into infinity.

fall out void

abandon your mortal form and ascend to a higher plane! at the disco

Them: The Irish Times was founded by "Protestant Nationalists" (literally they phrase it that way on their own site)
