Rita

Character Analysis

Rita is a good-natured divorcée who goes along for the ride on Humbert's crazy quest around the United States to find Lolita after she has run away. Rita is basically a companion and kind-hearted alcoholic. Spending two years traveling, Humbert speaks kindly of her as "the sweetest, simplest, gentlest, dumbest Rita imaginable. In comparison to her, Valechka [Valeria] was a Schlegel and Charlotte a Hegel" (2.26.3).
