This paper explains Nabokov's ultimate theme is the meaning and loss of identity, the moment where the soul is either subsumed into another or finds its grounds for resistance. The author points out that Nabokov creates a grand insecurity of being through words and through story and forces his readers to confront the fact that they themselves are no more stable in their being than are the characters they peruse. The paper relates that the Nabokov's infamous work, "Lolita," is a sordidly poetic novel representing in microcosm much of the pathos and glory of all his work.
