Lectures On Don Quixote (Paperback)

Lectures On Don Quixote By Vladimir Nabokov Cover Image
Not in Stock. Available to Order.


A fastidiously shaped series of lectures based on a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of the Spanish classic. Rejecting the common interpretation of Don Quixote as a warm satire, Nabokov perceives the work as a catalog of cruelty through which the gaunt knight passes. Edited and with a Preface by Fredson Bowers; photographs.
