Well it isn't really Monday yet, but I want to get a jump on things. I am rereading Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi. This time I decided to read it section by section and then read the corresponding novel. The first section discusses Lolita so that is what I will start tonight. Nafisi's perspective is that Lolita is not simply about an older man who is obsessed with a young girl; but, it is about a man obsessed with stealing her life and creating a new existence for her. That is creepy and sad in a vastly different way than just the story of a pervert! I am anxious to form my own opinion. I will definitely post more as I get into the story.
