Abstract

Over the last few years, I have noticed among my students of American literature a marked decrease in enthusiasm for Pynchon's works. Between the late seventies, when I was an undergraduate encountering Pynchon for the first time, and now, when my undergraduates encounter Pynchon for the first time, attitudes have undergone a sea change. Among several reasons for this change, one broad shift in cultural attitudes is particularly noteworthy.
