Abstract

False self and false elements of the self haunt John Barth's Chimera and Thomas Pynchon's V. In both is the ultimate betrayal of the body, the sexual self; in both is the false, unnatural, substitution of the false for the true limbs, eyes, teeth; in both is the betrayal of the body unused, the atrophying of the self.
