9780141197173: Collected Poems (Penguin Hardback Classics)

This landmark new collection brings together the best of the poetry of Vladimir Nabokov, one of the twentieth century's greatest writers and author of Lolita and Pale Fire, with an extensive number of poems never before in English, newly translated from the Russian by his son Dmitri Nabokov.

These masterly poems span the decades of Nabokov's career, from 'Music', written in 1914 and probably Nabokov's first recorded poem, to the short, playful 'To Vera', composed in 1974. 'The University Poem', one of Nabokov's major poetic works, is here in English for the first time. Included too are the surreally comic 'A Literary Dinner', 'Eve', the humorous 'An Evening of Russian Poetry' and 'Tolstoy', as well as verse written on America, lepidoptery, sport, love and Nabokov's Russian homeland.

Part of a major new beautiful hardback series of Vladimir Nabokov's work in Penguin Classics.

About the Author:

Vladimir Nabokov was born in 1899 in St Petersburg. He wrote his first literary works in Russian, but rose to international prominence as a masterly prose stylist for the novels he composed in English, most famously, Lolita. Between 1923 and 1940 he published novels, short stories, plays, poems and translations in the Russian language and established himself as one of the most outstanding Russian émigré writers. He died in 1977.
