The narrator of Vladimir Nabokov's 'Lolita'. Humbert (who is about 36) falls in love with Lolita (who is around 12 when he first meets her), and the two have a bizarre sexual relationship, even though he is her stepfather. Humbert is a complex character, and despite the fact he ruined Lolita's childhood, readers often end up pitying him at the end of the book, when he declares his love for Lolita and tries to fix what he has done by trying to protect Lolita.
Teacher : It's not wrong to feel sorry for Humbert when you finish the book.
