В.Набоков "ULTIMA THULE" - земля вымысла и правды

H.W. Longfellow
To G.W.G. George Washington Greene

Ultima Thule

With favoring winds, o'er sunlit seas,
We sailed for the Hesperides,
The land where golden apples grow;
But that, ah! that was long ago.

How far, since then the ocean streams
Have swept us from that land of dreams,
That land of fiction and of truth,
The lost Atlantis of our youth!

Whither, ah, whither? Are not these
The tempest-haunted Orcades,
Where sea gulls scream, and breakers roar,
And wreck and sea-weed line the shore?

Ultima Thule! Utmost Isle!
Here in thy harbors for a while
We lower our sails; a while we rest
From the unending, endless quest.

Мир и персонажы "Solus Rex" более правдивы что ли. Мир сложен, красочен. Персонажы логически и сюжетно более последовательны в своих действиях чем в реальном мире, тем паче в сравнении с государственными историческими мифами.
