This project will explore the various Romantic influences that Nabokov simultaneously draws and draws away from in Lolita. By analyzing the novel in relation to Keats's narrative poems, I will show the ways Nabokov veered from traditional Romantic structures in the trope of courtly love and in images of consumption and consumerism and how he linked the two different notions of consumption in the novel.
