The paper deals with the question of the Project of literature by Vladimir Nabokov. The
author of the paper presents evolution of the writer’s literary outlooks, investigates dependency
of his hypothesis on ideas promoted by certain literary schools and tries to determine the role
literature played in his life and creation. The analysis of Nabokov’s works leads to conclusion
that Nabokov in all his works designed his authorial concept of literature including understanding,
definition, process of creating, reception and evaluation.
