Abstract

Vladimir Nabokov's writing elucidates and revises Henri Bergson's philosophy. By examining Nabokov's idiosyncratic engagement with Bergson's thought in Speak, Memory, this essay demonstrates Nabokov's temporal layering of space, which is predicated on intuition and aesthetic patterning(s). The essay concludes with comments on Spinozian ethics, as integral to intuitional aesthetics.
