ABSTRACT. The focus in this paper is on the relationship of the self to autobiographical memory in Nabokov’s Speak, Memory. Despite the writer’s continuous vacillation between an artist’s imaginative freedom and a memorialist’s strict fidelity in recording the past, Speak, Memory provides a sense of personal identity and continuity. We also aim at accounting for the problematic status and distinctiveness of Vladimir Nabokov’s ars memoriae. pp. 103–107

Keywords: self; memory; identity; Vladimir Nabokov
