Pnin is Vladimir Nabokov’s 13th novel and his fourth written in English; it was published in 1957. The success of Pnin in the United States launched Nabokov’s career into literary prominence. Its eponymous protagonist, Timofey Pavlovich Pnin, is a Russian-born assistant professor in his 50s living in the United States. Exiled by the Russian Revolution and what he calls the “Hitler war”, Pnin teaches Russian at the fictional Waindell College, loosely inspired by Cornell University and Wellesley College—places where Nabokov himself taught.
Timofey Pavlovich Pnin, the title character, is a professor of Russian at Waindell College; “ideally bald” with a “strong man torso,” “spindly legs,” and “feminine feet.” Pnin is on a train from Waindell to Cremona, where he is to give a guest lecture. He is persistently bothered by the fear that he may lose his lecture papers, or mix them up with the student essay he is correcting. He discovers he has boarded the wrong train and gets off. When he tries to board a bus to Cremona, he suddenly realizes he has lost his luggage (with his papers) and has a seizure. He finally arrives at Cremona by truck, having recovered his papers, and is about to give his lecture when he experiences a vision, seeing his dead parents and friends from before the Russian Revolution in the audience. The chapter ends without revealing whether Pnin has the correct papers.
