"This is a striking and original book. Glynn attacks the trend in criticism of Nabokov that reads his work as a Symbolist and instead suggests that a large part of the novelist s work is founded on a dynamic interaction with the theories of Viktor Shklovsky and Henri Bergson. This study explores how Nabokov s project has been transformed by the philosophy of Shklovsky and Bergson into a fictional universe which is at once playful and serious, experimental yet rooted in the everyday, both engaged and moral, a convincing answer to the demeaning arguments that the writer is nothing more than a pure stylist." - Robert Lawson-Peebles, University of Exeter
