* {{Lolicon}}: TropeNamer (the word is a Japanese portmanteau/shorthand of "Lolita Complex"). The book is also a brutal ''[[UnbuiltTrope avant-la-lettre deconstruction]]'' of Lolicon.

''Lolita'' is a 1955 novel by Creator/VladimirNabokov about the relationship between erudite pedophile Humbert Humbert and his stepdaughter/kidnappee Dolores Haze. The action takes place between 1947 and 1952, and is chock-full of convoluted wordplay, multilingual puns, and allusions to everything from entomology to Creator/EdgarAllanPoe. Originally written in English and set in the US, it had to be published in France as pornography because no one else would touch it. Nabokov himself pointed out that this is probably the main reason why parents [[NeverLiveItDown don't name their daughters "Lolita" any more]].

This is where we get the terms "Lolita Complex" or "{{lolicon}}" in Japan, and the slang for "lolita", meaning a sexually attractive and/or promiscuous young girl.

Added DiffLines:

* MadnessMantra: Chapter 26, where the daily headache in the opaque air of the tombal jail is disturbing. The paragraph describes how he can't go on, and ends with Lolita repeated 10 times, followed by "Repeat till the page is full, printer".
