This introductory chapter compares Alfred Hitchcock and Vladimir Nabokov, the former a filmmaker and the latter a writer. The first section presents a cross-mapping of the two, which focuses on how their narratives and their highly aestheticised languages refigure a certain historicity. The chapter then considers the questions of exile and dislocation, and studies the double perspective on aesthetics and exile that is relevant to a reading of Nabokov and Hitchcock.
