Ada Annotated

This is really cool — a fully-annotated text of Vladimir Nabokov’s Ada, or Ardor (my favorite of his works!). It’s stunning to find out on how many levels that man was operating. It’s one thing to know that an author is making allusions you don’t get — with him, it makes one feel remarkably underread to discover just how many allusions are being made that you don’t even realize.
