Vane Sisters, The Easter Egg - Hidden Message
The final paragraph of Nabokov's short story "The Vane Sisters" is an acrostic.
Read the first letter of each word for a message attributing descriptive details of the story to the characters.
The paragraph reads very fluently for an acrostic.
Nobokov described this device as something that should be attempted at most once in a writer's career....
