Speak, memory: an autobiography revisited by Vladimir Nabokov; 29 editions; First published in ; Subjects: American Authors, Biography, Russian Authors . From one of the 20th century's great writers comes one of the finest autobiographies of our time. Speak, Memory was first published by Vladimir Nabokov. Sonia Albarani! Speak, Memory––by Vladimir Nabokov! Close Analysis of Passage: Chapter 11, Section 1, Last Paragraph!! The passage describes the first.
What I mean is not the bright mental image as, for instance, the face of a beloved parent long dead conjured up by a wing-stroke of the will; that is one of the bravest movements a human spirit can make. Nor am I alluding to the so-called muscae volitantes—shadows cast upon the retinal rods by motes in the vitreous humor, which are seen as transparent threads drifting across the visual field.
Perhaps nearer to the hypnagogic mirages I am thinking of is the colored spot, the stab of an afterimage, with which the lamp one has just turned off wounds the palpebral night.
At times, however, my photisms take on a rather soothing flou quality, and then I see—projected, as it were, upon the inside of the eyelid—gray figures walking between beehives, or small black parrots gradually vanishing among mountain snows, or a mauve remoteness melting beyond moving masts.

Passing on to the blue group, there is steely x, thundercloud z, and huckleberry k.
Since a subtle interaction exists between sound and shape, I see q as browner than k, while s is not the light blue of c, but a curious mixture of azure and mother-of-pearl. Confirmed Nabokovians will relish the further clues and references to his fictional works that shine like nuggets in the silver stream of his prose.
