Abstract

Throughout his novels, Thomas Pynchon demonstrates a meticulous concern for the interrelationship and dislocation between character and locale. Pynchon places his fictions in actual geographic locations, and like James Joyce in Ulysses and Graham Greene in It's a Battlefield, he exploits each location by filling his fictions with facts.
