9780141197173: Collected Poems (The Penguin Vladimir Nabokov Hardback Collection)

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.

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.
