Invito a una decapitazione, ovvero la metafora del mondo secondo Vladimir lo Scontroso. Mi viene subito da dire che l'interpretazione del romanzo come allegoria delle società totalitarie che opprimono l'individuo, diffusa nelle quarte di copertina e riportata pigramente in ogni riferimento al libro dell'universo mondo, è inesatta, banale e fuorviante. Il totalitarismo ultimo che opprime l'individuo qui è la realtà fisica, che Nabokov, in una lettura quasi buddhista, considera una sorta di velo di Maya che nasconde e svilisce la vera essenza delle cose. La cosiddetta oggettività del mondo è dipinta come una messinscena stupida e malfatta nella quale l'esistenza più vera (il Nirvana nabokoviano?) compare solo nei lampi fugaci di sensazioni momentanee, nelle peripezie dei sogni, nel sapore di certi pensieri inafferrabili che passeggiano alla periferia della mente, nei confusi e inesplicabili lampi del cuore, nelle crepe sulla marmorea superficie del reale che lasciano filtrare clamorosi barlumi. Cincinnatus C., prigioniero di una nera e possente fortezza che (spoiler) si rivelerà nient'altro che miserabile cartapesta, condannato a morte per crimini incomprensibili (qui l'accostamento con Kafka ci sta), perseguitato da una galleria di grotteschi personaggi (talmente fantozziani da risultare mostruosi) che lo trascinano in una pessima commedia recitata male, sprofonda in un surreale clima di terrore finché (ri-spoiler) proprio sul patibolo trova l'illuminazione che, come tutte le illuminazioni, è facile, semplice e naturale come il gesto di un bambino. Chi conosce Nabokov sa che questa sua weltanschauung (l'uomo che sente di appartenere a una realtà differente ma è esiliato in una cupa roccaforte fatta di grigiore, idiozia e bruttezza, condizione opprimente cui si può solo reagire con feroce ironia) è in fondo l'anima di ogni suo romanzo. Una stella in meno perché il libro calca troppo la mano sul registro della satira deforme a scapito dei momenti lirici e talvolta risulta un po' datato e indigesto.
