Butterflies and literature: RT test about Vladimir Nabokov
Vladimir Nabokov spent most of his life abroad, where he wrote works in Russian and English. As an émigré writer, he could not count on publications in the USSR. In the preface to The Gift, Nabokov noted: "It would be interesting to imagine a regime under which The Gift could be read in Russia." Now his work, like his biography, is available to everyone in every detail, from studying at the Tenishevsky School to his passion for entomology - collecting and studying butterflies.
