The Models of Space, Time and Vision in Vladimir Nabokov's Fiction Narrative Strategies and Cultural Frames (Tartu Semiotics L

The Models of Space, Time and Vision in Vladimir Nabokov's Fiction: Narrative Strategies and Cultural Frames (Tartu Semiotics Library) by Marina Grishakova
English | Dec. 2, 2006 | ISBN: 9949113067 | 323 Pages | PDF | 1 MB
Because of his rejection of socio-political engagement, Vladimir Nabokov is often regarded as a virtuouso artist of the ivory-tower variety, aloof from the contemporary march of the minds. Marina Grishakova's book, however, points to the relationship between his narrative techniques and some of the scientific, metaphysical, and ethical ideas on the inner agenda of the twentieth century. It connects Nabokov's handling of time, space, and perspective in his fiction with the philosophical models constructed by his contemporaries, also showing in what ways he may have been ahead of his time.
