In "Pale Fire" Nabokov offers a cornucopia of deceptive pleasures: a 999-line poem by the recluse genius John Shade: an adoring foreward and commentary by Shade's self-styled Boswell, Dr. Charles Kinbote: a darkly comic novel of suspense, literary idolatry and one-upmanship, and political intrigue.

" This centaur work, half-poem, half-prose . . . is a creation of perfect beauty, symmetry, strangeness, originality and moral truth. Pretending to be a curio, it cannot disguise the fact that it is one of the great works of art of this century." --Mary McCarthy
