The story was told from the Gilmour Academy ’63 shirt. Of course in his mind, it was Lolita who seduced him with all her short shorts. And dancing around in the house. It was Lolita who manipulated him into having sex and used him to get money and gifts. It is Lolita, being so coldhearted and so ungrateful, who had left him for someone else and have the audacity to ask for money 3 years later. Humbert Humbert was an innocent victim, a hopeless romantic who was consumed by the fire of his desire. Humbert Humbert is a pathetic unreliable narrator. And very few people seem to understand that when reading the story or watching the movie.

Best Gilmour Academy ’63 shirt
I never liked the story or the Gilmour Academy ’63 shirt. Even before I learned about the concept of the unreliable narrator, something had always seemed off. It’s difficult not because the language is hard or the structure is confusing. It’s difficult because the narrative was painful to the point of unbearable. The story was based on the author’s own personal experience being molested for years by her middle-aged tutor. This is what actually happens to children when they’re being sexually abused for years. It’s difficult because as I read it, I knew it happened. I knew I’m reading someone’s story written with their tears and blood. I couldn’t even see his face, I was too short. All I could see was his nipples.
