Nabokovs Lolita touches upon the theme of sexual prohibition the sexual inviolability of girls of a certain age Lolita is an assertion of the power of spirit of love but not as a natural pure feeling It is love that goes beyond control and regulation love that in one way or another leads into the destruction of many human beings This wild strong passion imprisons the protagonist and flies beyond the established norms of the society It deviates into a wrong direction and leads to unruly ungoverned behavior We stumble and fall into the tangle of what we want and what others think is right Despite our suffering we never really pierce the mystery of ourselves and why our most basic desires collide with a world of right and wrong Vladimir Nabokovs Lolita triggers a deep conflict about crossing the line between love and the perverse lust for a child The dual personality Humbert Humbert is totally captured and obsessed by the beauty and the spontaneous nature of the twelve- year old nymphet Dolores Haze which as a consequence changes his personality and way of living Gradually this fatal pervert love turns into a deep doomed obsession which leads him into a world where no moral constraints exist a world ruled only by impulses He completely disregards the moral code when concerning his lovely young Lolita - a mixture of tender dreamy childishness and a kind of eerie vulgarity 44 Morality is nothing else but a judgment of our own needs by the others imposed through their opinion and what is left for us is the oppressive duty to live as they think we should But Humberts excessive desire for possessing the child is too strong for these weak restraints It leads him to the world of sins wrong choices even to habitual deception For the sake of this pervert unnatural love he is ready to sacrifice his own dignity to debase his real self
