Nabokovs iakttagelseförmåga

”Bellow notices superbly; but Nabokov wants to tell us how important it is to notice. Nabokovs fiction i always becoming propaganda on behalf of good noticing, hence on behalf of itself. There are beauties that are not visual at all, and Nabokov has poorish eyes for those. How else to explain his dissmissals of Mann, Camus, Faulkner, Stendhal, James?”
