Maurice Couturier, Nabokov’s Eros and the Poetics of Desire, Palgrave Macmillan, June 2014

« Nabokov gained international fame with Lolita, a highly erotic and morally disturbing novel. Through its comprehensive study of the amorous and sexual behaviors of Nabokov’s characters this book shows how Eros, both as a clown or a pervert, contributes to the poetic excellence of his novels and accounts for the unfolding of the plots. »
