Transformations in Exile: The Multilingual Exploits of Nabokov's Pnin and Kinbote.
Nassar, Joseph
Visible Language, v27 n1-2 p252-72 Win-Spr 1993
Examines two works, "Pnin" (1957) and "Pale Fire" (1962), by writer Vladimir Nabokov, a polyglot with strong metalinguistic awareness. Shows how Nabokov used a polylinguistic matrix to create a subtext partially accessible to monoglots but only fully comprehensible to those who know several languages, literatures and histories. (SR)
