Why I Teach 'Lolita' (Article)
Title: Why I Teach 'Lolita'
Author: Anne Dwyer
Abstract: Anne Dwyer's students questioned the idea of reading the novel, even in a course on Nabokov. Here is her explanation of why the work should be taught. I’ve taught an undergraduate seminar on Vladimir Nabokov since 2008. In each iteration I’ve addressed the challenges of reading Lolita -- a novel whose plot (the fabula, to speak in Russian formalist terms) is about the abduction and ongoing sexual abuse of a child, but whose structures and devices (the siuzhet) point everywhere else. In 2016, students debated whether I should have included a “trigger warning” on the syllabus. This year I added a few words asking students to inform themselves about the plot of Lolita and to consider what it means that Nabokov treats “a range of human experience in a highly artful, and even artificial, way.”
