Lolita is a story structured as an autobiography written by Humbert Humbert during his time at the sanatorium and then in prison. It featured a vivid but unreliable narration of events that sees Humbert Humbert get infatuated with Lolita, a 12-year-old girl. Humbert came into the small town of Ramsdale seeking accommodation, and through a series of unfortunate happenstances ends up at the residence of Charlotte Haze. Although he dislikes the house, he accepts the lodging because he desires Charlotte’s young daughter, Dolores, whom he nicknames Lolita. He keeps a diary where he documents his fantasies for Lolita, as well as his attempts to find sexual gratification from the slightest physical contact. Events take Charlotte out of the way and allow Humbert to put into action his plans for Lolita. He moves her from town to town to keep her contented but is pursued by a not too dissimilar character, Clare Quilty, who wants Lolita too for his own selfish purpose. Humbert’s narration is from a perspective of a judged convict who is trying to plead his case not just to a judge and jury, but to the readers as well. He anticipates reactions to his actions and so sought to temper them with spirited persuasive strategies.
