Lolita 

In 1953 Vladimir Nabokov finished a book with the title Lolita. Lolita was the nickname for Dolores – the main character of the book. The book initially went unnoticed, but two years later it created an explosive critisism. Lolita was banned in many countries for its controversial subject. The editor of  Sunday Express John Gordon called the book: “the filthiest book I have ever read” and “sheer unrestrained pornography”. Till date the book quite justifiably generates controversy. The novel though was filmed several times.
