Vladimir Nabokov’s first novel, Mashenka, appeared in 1926, but it wasn’t until the publication of Lolita in 1955 that he had any success. Lolita was a landmark in both storytelling and controversy and was later made into a film by Stanley Kubrick. Nabokov's major critical works are an irreverent book about Nikolay Gogol and a four-volume translation of, and commentary on, Eugene Onegin.
