Lectures on Don Quixote (Paperback)
Harvest Books, 9780156495400, 240pp.
Publication Date: May 19, 1984
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.
