Lolita Part 2 Pages 247-309

I find the end of the book, Lolita to be quite surprising because Lolita changed since the beginning of the book. Lolita left Humbert and one day he received a letter from Lolita saying that she is already married and is pregnant on page 266; also she asks for money from him. After reading the letter, thinking that she might be suffering from hardships because she asks for money; he went to look for her to see how she is doing. When he visit her he noticed that she has changed. He asked Lolita “Come just as you are. And we shall live happily ever after.” (278). But Lolita rejected him; even though she didn’t want to live with him, Humbert give her an envelope that contain money in it. Yet once more, he asked her “You are sure you are not coming with me? Is there no hope of your coming?” (279). Once again she rejected him. Knowing that Lolita won’t leave with him, he left. As he was driving, he was unable to control his tears and he said “I was alone to enjoy the innocent night and my terrible thoughts” (281). Whenever he thought of Lolita, it makes him “weeping again, drunk on the impossible past.” (282). In the end of the book, it showed how much Humbert loves Lolita when he said “This book is about Lolita” (253). When Humbert knows that Lolita is married and pregnant, he doesn’t mind and asked her to “live happily ever after.” (278) with him but rejected him. Humbert try to forget about Lolita knowing that she won’t live with him.
