It consists of a 999-line poem of four cantos in heroic couplets together with an editor's preface, notes, index, and proof-corrections Pale Fire freed from the shackles of, or, if you prefer, the delicately woven web of Pale Fire. Pale Fire free at last to be a poem on its own. One essayist has told the story of how when Nabokov was writing poetry in Russian, the chief exile critic consistently trashed his work. Until he published some new poems under a pseudonym and the same critic praised them to the skies. Perhaps, in.
Pale Fire, a poem in heroic couplets, of nine hundred ninety-nine lines, divided into four cantos, was composed by John Francis Shade (born July 5, 1898, died July 21, 1959) during the last twenty days of his life, at his residence in New Wye, Appalachia, U.S.A His last poem, 'Pale Fire', is put into a book, together with a preface, a lengthy commentary and notes by Shade's editor, Charles Kinbote.

We must find a different way of seeing, of speaking as well as structuring, if we are. This response doesn't tell us much, but it does reveal that Nabokov conceived of Pale Fire as being of a new form: at the very least it is a new species of novel (if not a new genus of literature).
