Summary: The works of Vladimir Nabokov have traditionally functioned in a way thatchallenges its reader to question existing notions of normality. In his works, Nabokov hasfrequently utilized representations of disability as a means to comment or critique thehuman condition. Throughout this project I intend to demonstrate how the narratives inboth Lolita and Laughter in the Dark function as a normative force which embodies thecultural attitudes regarding disability. This is accomplished through the enforcement of anormative reading by the narrative. It is clear then that Nabakov is attempting to subvertliterary conventions by using nontraditional narrators to demonstrate the relativity ofnormality. Throughout this project, I will be focusing on Nabakov’s use of narrator todistort the cultural line between disability and ability. Ultimately, the goal of this project is to demonstrate that current societal notions of normality and disability are outdated andarbitrary.
