+ WNYC: Brian Boyd and Chipp Kidd, discuss Nabokov, The Original of Laura, as part of "A Celebration of Vladimir Nabokov."
"Inspiration," Nabokov split this old-fashioned word into two Russian parts. The first half of inspiration, for him, is vorstog (initial rapture). Vorstog describes that moment in which the book as a whole is conceived:
A combined sensation of having the whole universe entering you and of yourseld wholle dissolving in the universe surrounding you. It is the prison wall of the ego suddenly crumbling away and the non-ego rushing in from the outside to save the prisioner --who is already dancing in the open.

“I'll come to you tonight, dear, when it's late,
You will not see me; you may feel a chill.
I'll wait until you sleep, then take my fill,
And that will be your future on a plate.
They'll call it chance, or luck, or call it Fate.”
