Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov is presented as a 999-line poem titled "Pale Fire", written by the fictional John Shade, with a foreword and lengthy commentary by a neighbor and academic colleague of the poet. Together these elements form a narrative in which both authors are central characters. Pale Fire has spawned a wide variety of interpretations and a large body of written criticism, which Pekka Tammi estimated in 1995 as over 80 studies. The Nabokov authority Brian Boyd has called it "Nabokov's most perfect novel". It was ranked at #53 on the list of the Modern Library 100 Best Novels, and #1 on Larry McCaffery's 20th Century’s Greatest Hits: 100 English-Language Books of Fiction.
