Lolita Book 1, Chapter 25 Summary

  • Humbert is torn between thanking his lucky stars and recognizing the ethical problems presented by his perverse ways.
  • His lust wins out, of course, and he races to Camp Q (past Lake Climax) to swoop up the newly orphaned Lolita. She's all his.
  • A two-day hike prevents him from immediately seizing her and so he goes into town to indulge in a shopping spree that brings to his mind every dimension of Lolita's adolescent figure. The very act of shopping for her is an erotic experience.
  • He makes a reservation at an inn that Charlotte previously mentioned, by the name of The Enchanted Hunters.
