"Now I wish to introduce the following idea. Between the age limits of nine and fourteen there occur maidens who, to certain bewitched travelers, twice or many times older than they, reveal their true nature which is not human, but nymphic (that is, demoniac); and these chosen creatures I propose to designate as nymphets."
- Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita
Lolita caused quite a stir when it was first published in 1955. In 1962, when Lolita was made into a movie the actress who played Lolita, Sue Lyon, was fourteen at the time of filming. She wore those now-iconic heart-shaped glasses, pretty cotton babydoll dresses, and red lipstick.
