9780140181685: Pale Fire (Twentieth Century Classics)

A novel constructed around the last great poem of a fictional American poet, John Shade, and an account of his death. The poem appears in full and the narrative develops through the lengthy, and increasingly eccentric, notes by his posthumous editor.

Review:

This centaur work, half-poem, half-prose . . . is a creation of perfect beauty, symmetry, strangeness, originality and moral truth. Pretending to be a curio, it cannot disguise the fact that it is one of the great works of art of this century (Mary McCarthy)

Review:

He did us all an honour by electing to use, and transform, our language (Anthony Burgess)
