Abstract

In this article, I examine Nabokov’s literary views through the focus of the work of the Swiss critic Jean Rousset. Rousset’s Forme et Signification (1963) displays a combination of phenomenological literary criticism with structuralist interests. It will be shown that his thoughts and method provide a valuable context to understand Nabokov’s views on writers, readers and literary communication.
