There she would read tattered German books or look through her late husband’s papers, whose contents she understood not a whit. The only other person to go into her room was Podtyagin, who would stroke her affectionate black dachshund, tickle its ears and the wart on its hoary muzzle, and try to make the dog sit up and proffer its crooked paw.

Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977) was born in St Petersburg.

Everyday low prices on a huge range of new releases and classic fiction. Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977) was born 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.

Translated from the Russian. having recalled a former love. I settled for Mary, which seemed to match best the neutral simplicity of the Russian title name. The Russian title of the present novel, Mashenka, a secondary diminutive of Maria, defies rational transliteration (the accent is on the first syllable with the a pronounced as in ask and a palatalized n as in mignon ). Mashenka was my first novel. I started working on it in Berlin, soon after my marriage in the spring of 1925.

This is only the second Nabokov novel I've read, the other being Lolita, which is undoubtedly my favorite novel I've ever read.

It didn't take me very long at all to read this very short "novel," but what I found in it left me with a few very defined and important (to me) thoughts.

This was his first published novel. This novel was translated to English some forty years after its Russian publication. How much of his words were refined and changed in the translation? He said he tried to keep it true to the original Russian text.

The author's effort is obviously that of an inexperienced writer, but for someone's first publication, he really showed a lot of promise and passion.

I was very pleased to read this book, and to anyone who has read Lolita, I would strongly recommend this book, if not for anything other than to see his growth.

In this book, Nabokov indicates that this was one of his very first books. It was published and copyrighted posthumously. The manuscript appears to be developmental for Nabokov. The signposts of Nabokov are clearly illustrated in his use of irony and surrealism.

Interestingly, while many characters appear in the story, the text conceptually is primarily an exposition of the inner thoughts of the protagonist Ganin. The story involves the life during an interim period of Ganin's life; who is really at this time, a transient in Berlin. If he is sure where he will end up, Nabokov does not let the reader know. Rather, Ganin seems more to be drifting toward his ordained life, in some other place than in Mother Russia.

As usual, Nabokov does make a bit of a negative commentary about homosexuality, although it is somewhat more veiled than his later outright homophobic perspective. Nabokov understands the homosexuality, yet disdains it here, as he does in other novels.

The book is especially of interest to Nabokov readers who are trying to see the developmental phases of the author's long and illustrious writing career. It is recommended to all who are interested in ironic, existential and surreal views of real life.

An easy Nabokov read.

A once in a generation author.

This is Nabokov's first published novel. Best to read an analysis of the work first because it cannot be taken at face value. It's been said this is one of Nabokov's finest nostalgic pieces, which is why I read it.
