Lolita was described as having "Savage Humour". It's a slow starter but eventually picks up pace until things spiral out of control and we reach a disturbing climax.
The diction in this book is pure romanticism: an abuse of adjectives. Things are described so beautifully with flowery language that it's easy to get lost. Everything is so purposeful and delicate and executed without much a misstep.
The language is coupled with the circumstance in such a perfect marriage that they both rely on each other completely. The style of prose and the plot are so inseparable that it makes the book Art. And the novel can be appreciated as such even without asking the reader to ponder anything further.
Yet it does challenge the audience to analyse their morals and someone else's actions in such a way that it's visceral despite the artistic distractions. I've never read anything like it before. Not just in plot but in style - a beautiful Yet challenging read with plenty of room for conscience thought. *No Spoilers*. (REVIEW - WEEK 11, YEAR 4)
