    "[Second Thoughts on Capitalism and the State is a] profoundly reflective book shows a pathway forward for academics and activists alike who are stymied by the disconnect between deep critical scholarship and emancipatory social change, yet who will still not give up the good fight."

    - Professor Diane E. Davis, Harvard University

Deconstructing Lolita

This book explores how one can read and teach literature with Jacques Derrida through a series of articles on Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita, ranging from 2003 to 2017. All of them resort to the French philosopher’s works as a basis for the analysis of the different chosen literary issues such as structure, genre, character or interpretation, for example.

The book addresses both Nabokovian specialists and students of Nabokov’s works, and could, thereby, be used as teaching guidelines not only for Lolita, but also for those interested in deconstruction.

Jacqueline Hamrit taught English as a Professeur Agrégée at the University of Lille, France. Her research interests are literature, literary theory, and deconstruction. She has published articles and essays on Nabokov, Derrida and psychoanalysis in journals such as The Oxford Literary Review and Psyart. She is the author of Authorship in Nabokov’s Prefaces and Frontières et limites dans l’oeuvre de Vladimir Nabokov.
