Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Lolita is a 1955 novel by Vladimir Nabokov about the relationship between erudite pedophile Humbert Humbert and his stepdaughter/kidnappee Dolores Haze. The action takes place between 1947 and 1952, and is chock-full of convoluted wordplay, multilingual puns, and allusions to everything from entomology to Edgar Allan Poe. Originally written in English and set in the US, it had to be published in France as pornography because no one else would touch it. Nabokov himself pointed out that this is probably the main reason why parents don't name their daughters "Lolita" any more.This is where we get the terms "Lolita Complex", or "Lolicon" in Japan, and the slang for "Lolita", meaning a sexually attractive and/or promiscuous young girl.Adapted into two films, one by Stanley Kubrick in 1962, starring James Mason as Humbert Humbert and Sue Lyon as Lolita, the other by Adrian Lyne in 1997, starring Jeremy Irons as H.H. and Dominique Swain as Lolita.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })

Affably Evil: Humbert Humbert. There's at least one moment in the book in which he contemplates killing his wife and how easily he could get away with it, but finds that he really is just too nice to do it. In some ways, this actually makes him even worse, and the mid-story Diabolus ex Machina that puts her out of his way is made that much more bitterly ironic.

Abhorrent Admirer: Charlotte Haze in Humbert Humbert's eyes: he thinks she is unattractive and she always tries to pick him up. He has to keep reminding himself that she's related to his love Lolita and he treats Charlotte decent in order to be close to her daughter.

comment
Abusive Parents: Apart from the obvious sexual abuse, Humbert has a bad habit of hitting his adoptive daughter Dolores when she fails to please him, in bed or otherwise. In one of the most disturbing scenes in a highly disturbing book, we learn that he routinely pays her for sex, after which he takes the money back by force so that she can't save up enough to run away.
