The book aims to give insight into the complex structure of Nabokov's English novels from The Real Life of Sebastian Knight to Look At The Harlquins!. Although the copious allusionary techniques and wordgames could only be given exemplary treatment, an attempt has been made to shed light on their respective function in the total conception of each novel. Above all , this study concentrates on the relationship between fact and fiction - a problem central to all these novels, which are not only written in the form of biographies or autobiographies, but also make a special point of the problems connected with writing biography. Nowhere within fiction does the question of how to represent reality deserve more priority than in fictitious biography. The different ways in which Nabokov demonstrates this basic problem, inherent in every genuine biography or autobiography, in the fictitious world of his novels is the main subject of this investigation, which is also very well suited as a reader's guide.
