No description available, No description available, Vladimir E Alexandrov advocates a broad revision of the academic study of literature proposing an adaptive text specific approach designed to minimize the circularity of interpretation inherent in the act of reading He illustrates this method with the example of Tolstoy s classic novel via a detailed map of the different possible readings that the novel can support The novel i Anna Karenina i emerges as deeply conflicted polyvalent and quite unlike what one finds in other critical studies, A major reexamination of the novelist Vladimir Nabokov as literary gamesman this book systematically shows that behind his ironic manipulation of narrative and his puzzle like treatment of detail there lies an aesthetic rooted in his intuition of a transcendent realm and in his consequent redefinition of nature and artifice as synonyms Beginning with Nabokov s discursive writings Vladimir Alexandrov finds his world view centered on the experience of epiphany characterized by a sudden fusion of varied sensory data and memories a feeling of timelessness and an intuition of immortality which grants the true artist intimations of an otherworld Readings of The Defense Invitation to a Beheading The Gift The Real Life of Sebastian Knight Lolita and Pale Fire reveal the epiphanic experience to be a touchstone for the characters metaphysical insightfulness moral makeup and aesthetic sensibility and to be a structural model for how the narratives themselves are fashioned and for the nature of the reader s involvement with the text In his conclusion Alexandrov outlines several of Nabokov s possible intellectual and artistic debts to the brilliant and variegated culture that flourished in Russia on the eve of the Revolution Nabokov emerges as less alienated from Russian culture than most of his emigre readers believed and as less modernist than many of his Western readers still imagine Alexandrov s work is distinctive in that it applies an otherworld hypothesis as a consistent context to Nabokov s novels The approach is obviously a fruitful one Alexandrov is innovative in rooting Nabokov s ethics and aesthetics in the otherwordly and contributes greatly toNabokov studies by examining certain key terms such as commonsense nature and artifice In general Alexandrov s study leads to a much clearer understanding of Nabokov s metaphysics D Barton Johnson University of California Santa Barbara
