Nabokov, a Janus-like novelist whose novels may have various meanings, is generally seen as a doubly obscure novelist. With a tendency to create inaccessible works, a few privileged readers are capable of deciphering his intricate patterns. In his novels discussed herein, for example, Nabokov wants to make himself the sole authorial image of Nabokov the artificial self. And thus by using such characters to present himself to the world, Nabokov demonstrates his desire to control his own art by the power of his will. To accomplish this, Nabokov tends to put special emphasis on the absence of reality. While his novels do not represent his past, Nabokov does incorporate personal experiences in the form of autobiographies and biographies throughout his work. Such self-making is closely related with his own autobiographical experiences. Although he denies this fact, we can find much evidence to the contrary in his literary thoughts and work. From another perspective, Nabokov also denies any idea that is related with the Bolshevik Revolution, which severed him from the golden age of his childhood. Additionally, he distrusts the Freudian theory as a sort of subdivision of ideas and considers Marxism as well as Freudianism to be typical of generalization, objectation, or standardized symbols. His contempt for standardized symbols extends to the assumptions of a good many other literary theorists, critics, and writers. Furthermore, Nabokov criticizes traditional realism and T. S. Eliot`s generalized modernism, placing emphasis instead on individuality and concrete particulars. He also objects to the linearity of time in realism and modernism conventions, wanting rather to eliminate all categorization that can exist in the world. Thus, Nabokov strives to replace the categorized world with his own artificial world, one that he can control and create by means of pattern-making devices. This desire to control reality, which may be called the Nabokovian resistance or subversion, motivates Nabokov to invent himself into his own novels. Thus, his self-making in his novels becomes the basic elements in his artificial world. Moreover, in making artificial selves, Nabokov puts his autobiographical facts into his novels, distorting and redesigning them. So, in all of his novels, Nabokov creates more than two characters who can be considered as the author`s double or galley slaves. In this case, however, Nabokov controls his doubles, creating various types of selves in order to explore his own theories and create his own artificial reality. Throughout his work, Nabokov`s artificial self is a patterned self beyond a meaningless existence, which simply takes place in time. As such, Nabokov, moreover, is able to create a world where his theories can be explored and where he can live on in immortality, fulfilling both his own literary aims as well as his aims of life.
