Poems and Problems Hardcover – 1970. I can't say anything about the problems except that "problems are the poems of chess": their absolute worth is not measured in terms of difficulty, but of beauty. And as far as beauty is concerned, Nabokov is an (if not the ) expert on it. What is there to say, then, about the (literal) poems? I, for one, love them. They happen to be perfectly, Nabokovianly beautiful. But, love them or hate them, one thing is certain: Nabokov knew his poetic workbench, and knew it well.

Vladimir Nabokov: Poems and Problems. A velvet-like banging in the head: the carved pieces move. Poems and chess problems are the end products of very different forms of artistic endeavour

Vladimir Nabokov: Poems and Problems. Vladimir Nabokov: The knight. Vladimir Nabokov, November 3, 1972, Novelist, Lepidopterist, Chess analyst" is the caption of this image published by David R. Godine with Black Sparrow Books. Poems and chess problems are the end products of very different forms of artistic endeavour. It is rather rare for someone to be creative in both fields. And it is even rarer to find the results of both processes of creation presented to gether in a single work.

A Family with Liberal Leanings Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov was born . The original Russian version of the book received little attention, but after Nabokov's reputation burgeoned and the work was translated into English.

A Family with Liberal Leanings Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, on April 22, 1899, to Vladimir Dmitrievich Nabokov, a distinguished jurist known for his liberal political views, and Elena Ivanovna Rukavishnikova. Nabokov began to write poems when he was thirteen and, as he described it, the numb fury of verse-making first came over me. He began writing poems in Russian, French, and English, but his real passion for writing poetry began in 1914. The original Russian version of the book received little attention, but after Nabokov's reputation burgeoned and the work was translated into English, Mary received closer critical attention.

Selected poems in both Russian and English together with eighteen chess problems and their solutions demonstrate the intellectual complexity and creative versality of this contemporary Russian writer
  • I can't say anything about the problems except that "problems are the poems of chess": their absolute worth is not measured in terms of difficulty, but of beauty. And as far as beauty is concerned, Nabokov is an (if not *the*) expert on it.

    What is there to say, then, about the (literal) poems? I, for one, love them. They happen to be perfectly, Nabokovianly beautiful. But, love them or hate them, one thing is certain: Nabokov knew his poetic workbench, and knew it well. You'd be hard-pressed to find a moment here where the Nabokov-the-craftsman falls short. The poems are flawless and lovely (lovely [adjective] "Having a beauty that appeals to the heart or mind as well as to the eye") and some of them are truly moving. That said, what irks the other reviewer is probably that they are not terribly daring, iconoclastic, bold, innovative, nor possessed with such terrible and terrifying fervency as one can find in some art, including Nabokov's fiction. Doesn't bother me, and shouldn't bother most Nabokovphiles, as the aesthetic (and the attitude!) are all here. But if you insist that all the art you consume be not merely beautiful and good, but "great"--or, worse still, "great" at the expense of beauty and goodness--perhaps you'd be better served by a volume of Allen Ginsberg.

  • Nabokov is my daddy. Love this book. Great quality :)

  • To mix poems and problems (of chess) it's an unique idea. Only Nabokov could do it. It's a master. Of literatura, of course. Of chess, also.

  • I have to respectfully disagree with the previous reviewer. I haven't read the poems, but I've worked on the problems on-line. They are anything but easy. I have found them devilish, elegant, challenging, and confounding. Of course, I admit that everything's relative. I'm not a tournament player; I play purely recreationally. However, I suspect that even if you are a strong player and can solve the problems with much less effort than I, you'll appreciate their ingenuity and originality.

  • nabokov, while being a superb writer of fiction, isn't the best poet there is. i'm not saying the poems in this collection were bad, just nothing spectacular. (the chess problems on the other hand were a joke, way too easy)
    which is a shame because, like many other fiction writers, he found great dissapointment in the world not viewing him as a poet. but, once again, it's because he didn't produce that many stellar poems. it was interesting to see a well-known translator translate his own work. it has to bring something new to the world of translation. i wonder if it has any special problems...
