Many connoisseurs consider Nabokov to be one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. The echoes of his inimitable art can be found in the most varied places, from popular culture, to poetry, to contemporary fiction. Zembla is proud to present two fine examples of texts inspired by Nabokov: Ekaterina, a novel by Donald Harington, and "Dark Ice," a long poem by Tom Bolt.

On the occasion of Nabokov's 100th birthday, J. Morris offers a commemorative poem which mimics the "Onegin stanza" so dear to VN.

Greggory Moore presents a poem fashioned after Nabokov's short story "Scenes from the Life of a Double Monster."

Victor Fet presents a poem in Russian called "Набоков и Холодковский."

Painter and printmaker Alan Turnbull presents an online exhibit of etchings inspired by Nabokov's work.
