|Other Abstract||As a writer who makes efforts to pursue the art of fiction, Nabokov endows Lolita with distinctive aesthetic value that deserves attention. Based on the studies of previous scholars, the present author attempts to interpret Lolita as a metaphysical detective story, meanwhile to broaden the horizon of its interpretation.
The present author examines Nabokov’s views on reality and art of fiction, analyzes how Nabokov adopts and adapts the mode of the detective story in the novel, and further proves that it is a metaphysical detective story. Then she demonstrates the lack of the narrative closure and the frustration of both the detective and the reader, pointing out that the aim of the defeated detection is to reveal the fictionality of fiction.
Through the analysis, the present author draws the conclusion that in the metaphysical detective story Lolita, by employing the trappings of detective fiction, Nabokov expresses his assertion that novel is only the writer’s creation, in which he builds up his own fantastic world.|
