Who is Lolita? The Nabokov literary classic has sparked infinite discussion in the 65 years since its release, but the cultural memory the book has left behind lives more in romance and fashion aesthetics than a cautionary tale about a deceptive predator and his young prey. Jamie Loftus wants to know how we got here, and this series traces Lolita -- the person, Dolores Haze -- from her literary origin to current status as a doomed icon.

Could not finish due to the nature of the podcast but what I did listen to I really did enjoy

A much needed analysis

Jamie comprehensively unravels the giant knot that surrounds the treatment of survivors and the narratives we tell about abuse. She is well spoken, gracious, and somehow manages to give moments of comic relief in a topic so horrifying. A slay for survivors everywhere🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Extremely detailed and well spoken

Jamie puts into words what a lot of us think but can not put into words on this topic. She presents the facts, the interpretations, the quotes and puts it all out on the table for the listener to make of it what they will. As a child you hear all of these terms about sexual abuse & child abuse but it isn't until you grow up and hear peoples experiences that you can take off the blindfold and realize the evil was there all along, you just never knew what it looked like because the media had told you that it would be a man in a trench coat not someone you might know. Thank you Jamie for showing so many people that they're dialogue is valid, you're dialogue around this topic is so well spoken that you make something so taboo a little bit easier to listen to be this conversations NEED to happen.
