n in his first seduction of Dolores. This takes place in The Enchanted Hunters Lodge, where ‘Hunters’ may be seen as having links to the predatory way in which not only Humbert, but also society, views him. Not only this, but there is more nuanced foreshadowing within the name: Charlotte Haze herself describes the hotel as ‘quaint’. The common usage of this means ‘elegant; attractive’, but also has more archaic euphemistic connotations as a term for female genitalia, which stems from the Middle English ‘queynte’. In this way, Humbert’s first knowledge of the hotel places it under a sexual subtext which is affirmed and validated by the resultant actions which take place in that setting. What must be also acknowledged when discussing the more specific locales, and indeed all proper nouns in the novel, is that Humbert Humbert confesses to changing at least a number of them, for purposes of anonymity as well as perhaps the further the aestheticism which pervades his recollection of events. Another key example is ‘Briceland’, which is the town in which The Enchanted Hunters Lodge may be found. ‘Brice’, is homophonous with the male name ‘Bryce’ which has ranked in the top one thousand popular names of the U.S. since 1918, and reinforces the ‘all American’ mentality, adding a universality to the locale. Not only this, but it stems from an Old and Middle English noun that means ‘the breaking or violation of a commandment […] (often contextually with reference to loss of virginity or chastity)’. The name is proleptic as Humbert first transgresses the usual sexual bounds and [r*p*s] Lolita in Briceland, suggesting that, for him and his narration, place names influence the sexual acts that he conducts there. The Enchanted Hunters is therefore set in a nominatively sexualized town; Humbert focuses on getting there, despite his words: ‘all along our route, countless motor courts proclaimed their vacancy in neon lights’.>GET ANSWER
