Abstract

An Ethics? In Gravity's Rainbow? What would it look like? Where would one begin? Here, for example: on the knotted questions of comparison (which X is this?). occurrence (how does X arise?) and reference (what does X stand for?) with which the novel opens. "A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now. It is too late" (3).
