Pale Fire


先有中國梅先生譯本,後有台灣廖女士譯本。
Vladimir Nabokov
"True art is above false honor."
--from Pale Fire (1962)
In Pale Fire Nabokov offers a cornucopia of deceptive pleasures: a 999-line poem by the reclusive genius John Shade; an adoring foreword and commentary by Shade's self-styled Boswell, Dr. Charles Kinbote; a darkly comic novel of suspense, literary idolatry and one-upmanship, and political intrigue.
