We'll base this on various factors for example "If you like Jack Reacher Nabokov's Lolita was ranked fourth in the list of the Modern Library Best Novels in ;  Pale Fire was ranked 53rd on the same list; and his memoir, Speak, Memory , was listed eighth on publisher Random House 's list of the 20th century's greatest nonfiction. Nabokov was also an expert lepidopterist and composer of chess problems. Nabokov was born on 22 April 10 April Old Style , in Saint Petersburg , [a] to a wealthy and prominent family of the Russian nobility that traced its roots to the 14th-century Tatar prince Nabok Murza , who entered into the service of the Tsars, and from whom the family name is derived.
His father was a leader of the pre-Revolutionary liberal Constitutional Democratic Party and wrote numerous books and articles about criminal law and politics. Through his father's German ancestry, he was related to the composer Carl Heinrich Graun — Vladimir was the family's eldest and favorite child, with four younger siblings: Sergey —45 , Olga —78 , Elena — , and Kirill — Sergey was killed in a Nazi concentration camp in after publicly denouncing Hitler's regime. Ayn Rand recalled Olga her close friend at Stoiunina Gymnasium as a supporter of constitutional monarchy who first awakened Rand's interest in politics.
Nabokov spent his childhood and youth in Saint Petersburg and at the country estate Vyra near Siverskaya , south of the city. His childhood, which he called "perfect" and "cosmopolitan", was remarkable in several ways. The family spoke Russian, English, and French in their household, and Nabokov was trilingual from an early age. He related that the first English book his mother read to him was Misunderstood by Florence Montgomery. In fact, much to his patriotic father's disappointment, Nabokov could read and write in English before he could in Russian.
In Speak, Memory Nabokov recalls numerous details of his privileged childhood, and his ability to recall in vivid detail memories of his past was a boon to him during his permanent exile, providing a theme that echoes from his first book Mary to later works such as Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle.
While the family was nominally Orthodox , there was little religious fervor, and Vladimir was not forced to attend church after he lost interest. In , Nabokov inherited the estate Rozhdestveno , next to Vyra, from his uncle Vasily Ivanovich Rukavishnikov "Uncle Ruka" in Speak, Memory , but lost it in the October Revolution one year later; this was the only house he ever owned. Nabokov's adolescence was also the period in which his first serious literary endeavors were made. In , Nabokov published his first book, Stikhi "Poems" , a collection of 68 Russian poems.
At the time he was attending Tenishev school in Saint Petersburg, where his literature teacher Vladimir Vasilievich Gippius had been critical of his literary accomplishments. Some time after the publication of Stikhi , Zinaida Gippius , renowned poet and first cousin of Vladimir Gippius, told Nabokov's father at a social event, "Please tell your son that he will never be a writer. After the October Revolution, the family was forced to flee the city for Crimea , not expecting to be away for very long.
They lived at a friend's estate and in September moved to Livadiya , at the time part of the Ukrainian Republic ; Nabokov's father became a minister of justice in the Crimean Regional Government. After the withdrawal of the German Army in November and the defeat of the White Army early , the Nabokovs sought exile in western Europe.
They settled briefly in England and Vladimir enrolled in Trinity College of the University of Cambridge , first studying zoology , then Slavic and Romance languages. His examination results on the first part of the Tripos , taken at the end of second year, were a starred first. He sat the second part of the exam in his fourth year, just after his father's death. Nabokov feared he might fail the exam, but his script was marked second-class. His final examination result was second-class, and his BA conferred in Nabokov later drew on his Cambridge experiences to write several works, including the novels Glory and The Real Life of Sebastian Knight.
Nabokov followed them to Berlin two years later, after completing his studies at Cambridge.
In March , Nabokov's father was fatally shot in Berlin by the Russian monarchist Pyotr Shabelsky-Bork as he was trying to shield the real target, Pavel Milyukov , a leader of the Constitutional Democratic Party -in-exile. This mistaken, violent death echoed again and again in Nabokov's fiction, where characters would meet their deaths under accidental terms.
In Pale Fire , for example, one interpretation of the novel has an assassin mistakenly kill the poet John Shade, when his actual target is a fugitive European monarch. Shortly after his father's death, Nabokov's mother and sister moved to Prague. Sirin a reference to the fabulous bird of Russian folklore. To supplement his scant writing income, he taught languages and gave tennis and boxing lessons. Zimmer has written: "He never became fond of Berlin, and at the end intensely disliked it.
He lived within the lively Russian community of Berlin that was more or less self-sufficient, staying on after it had disintegrated because he had nowhere else to go to. He knew little German. He knew few Germans except for landladies, shopkeepers, and immigration officials at the police headquarters. In , Nabokov became engaged to Svetlana Siewert; she broke off the engagement in early , her parents worrying that he could not provide for her.
In the same year, Nabokov began seeking a job in the English-speaking world. In May , the Nabokovs fled the advancing German troops to the United States on board the SS Champlain , with the exception of Nabokov's brother Sergei, who died at the Neuengamme concentration camp on 9 January Nabokov joined the staff of Wellesley College in as resident lecturer in comparative literature.
The position, created specifically for him, provided an income and free time to write creatively and pursue his lepidoptery. Nabokov is remembered as the founder of Wellesley's Russian Department. The Nabokovs resided in Wellesley, Massachusetts , during the —42 academic year. In September they moved to Cambridge , where they lived until June Following a lecture tour through the United States, Nabokov returned to Wellesley for the —45 academic year as a lecturer in Russian.
In , he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. He served through the —48 term as Wellesley's one-man Russian Department, offering courses in Russian language and literature. His classes were popular, due as much to his unique teaching style as to the wartime interest in all things Russian.
Among his students at Cornell was future U. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg , who later identified Nabokov as a major influence on her development as a writer. Nabokov wrote Lolita while travelling on butterfly-collection trips in the western United States that he undertook every summer. He called her the best-humored woman he had ever known. In June Nabokov and his family went to Ashland, Oregon. There he finished Lolita and began writing the novel Pnin. He roamed the nearby mountains looking for butterflies, and wrote a poem called Lines Written in Oregon.
On 1 October , he and his family returned to Ithaca, New York , where he would later teach the young writer Thomas Pynchon. After the great financial success of Lolita , Nabokov returned to Europe and devoted himself to writing. His son obtained a position as an operatic bass at Reggio Emilia. In he was hospitalized with a fever doctors were unable to diagnose.
He was rehospitalized in Lausanne in , suffering from severe bronchial congestion. He died on 2 July in Montreux surrounded by his family and, according to his son, Dmitri, "with a triple moan of descending pitch".
