The art of celebration : twentieth-century painting, literature, sculpture, photography, and jazz by Alfred Appel( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Their works have often portrayed the commonplace: cars, gasoline stations, roadside diners, electric signs, movies, radios, skyscrapers ... celebrating - even through war in Europe and depression at home - the advances in technology, the new look of the cities ... Appel discusses how their art stimulates and quickens the pulse, and how - with its folk images of the new, willed "primitivism," in part inspired by the tribal art of Africa and Oceania - it projects optimism, humor, energy. Full of ideas and brilliant critical insights, this is a book at once idiosyncratic, authoritative, and fun to look at and to read

Lolita by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

12 editions published between 1955 and 2000 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was published in 1955, Lolita immediately became a cause celebre because of the freedom and sophistication with which it handled the unusual erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Vladimir Nabokov's wise, ironic, elegant masterpiece owes its stature as one of the twentieth century's novels of record not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story almost shocking in its beauty and tenderness. Awe and exhilaration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in this account of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America, but most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation

Vladimir Nabokov by Patricia Desmortiers( Visual )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relatives, friends, and professional associates examine the life and works of the Russian-born novelist and critic. Nabokov, who began his literary career as a poet, is perhaps best known for his controversial novel, Lolita, and an irreverent critical work on Nikolai Gogol. Writing extensively in both Russian and English, his intricate, stylish literary effects and unorthodox structure are apparent in works including Pale Fire and The Gift. Excerpts from these and other novels reinforce the core thesis of his entire body of fiction: the problem of art itself, presented in various figurative disguises
