IMAGES: 7 Stunning Cover Redesigns Of 'Lolita'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The following is an excerpt fromLolita - The Story of a Cover Girl: Vladimir Nabokov's Novel in Art and Design, edited by John Bertram and Yuri Leving. In it, 80 graphic designers reimagine the iconic cover of Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. There are also multiple essays by Nabokov scholars on the difficulty of visually representing the themes of the classic. The book publishes on August 16. Fifty-eight years after Lolita was first published, Vladimir Nabokov’s most famous novel remains firmly in the public consciousness, but more often for its misunderstood subject than for its masterful and dazzling prose.

Mother Jones - over 4 years

Todd Akin's claim that women's bodies magically fend off rapist sperm or the GOP's meditation on what's really rape sound medieval to you, that's because they are. Check out our timeline of the male notions and common-law statutes that have defined rape over time, and see for yourself which eras the GOP's views on rape line up with: Property theft: The Code of Hammurabi, one of the first sets of written laws, which dates to about 1780 BC (and contains the old "eye for an eye"), defines rape of a virgin as property damage against her father. If you were married, sorry lady: You were an adulteress. Punishment? You get thrown in the river. Translation: Girl, you're screwed. Batigolix/FotopediaGod is a dude: Deuteronomy 22:28-29 says if you rape a virgin, you have to give her dad 50 shekels and take her to the altar. Et tu, Roma? Th ...

Sue Lyon recorded two songs for the MGM-Seven Arts Presentation of Harris-Kubrick's "Lolita" on an MGM 45 rpm record, Side-A, "Lolita Ya Ya" (Riddle-Harris) and Side-B, "Turn Off the Moon" (Stillman-Harris).
