Lolita is the story of Humbert Humbert, a middle-aged professor of literature who becomes lustfully obsessed with twelve-year-old Dolores Haze, eventually marrying her mother and becoming her stepfather. Nabokov’s novel, written in English and published in Paris in 1955, was later banned in France until 1958 for being “a dangerous book” (Cornell University Library). It was also banned in England, Australia, Burma, Belgium, and Austria.
