6: Lolita the Cover Girl, Lolita the Pop Star

Released Monday, 4th January 2021
 3 people rated this episode
How long have we been judging Lolita by its cover? To be fair, they're not much help. This week, Jamie guides you through a crash course on Lolita/nymphet aesthetics -- when we say 'Lolita,' what are we really talking about? We take a look at the visual legacy of Lolita's book covers, persistence in advertising and how misreads of the text have been haunting pop music for generations.

Really loving this series--any deep read is appreciated, and a deep read of such a vastly misread text especially.
I've never read the book. This episode is kind of like me when I complain about music genres. Modern country music has little resemblance to country music of 1955, modern industrial music has little resemble to Throbbing Gristle, and modern Lolita references have little to do with the book.
