Thomas H. Schaub notes that" the experience of 1 ambiguity in the reading of Pynchon is essential." However, this is not necessarily the case for criticism of Pynchon's work. So, when Schaub makes a rather ambiguous statement concerning chemistry in dealing with Gravity's Rainbow, I feel that a minor debate about that statement should ensue. It is not that Schaub's statement is grossly in error as it stands, but the ambiguity of his phrasing leaves him open to criticism from the very field he is using to elucidate a pattern in Pynchon's novel.
