Abstract

For a number of years I taught Gravity's Rainbow as the last book in my graduate course "Post-WWII American Fiction." The course usually included a dozen books, with a separate, short writing assignment on each. The students were required to do any three of these short assignments and then a longer research paper. In the short assignments, I usually identified a brief passage from the assigned novel, raised a long list of specific questions about the passage, and asked the students to answer some of those questions in the process of relating a careful analysis of the language to thematic, stylistic, or generic issues concerning the book as a whole.
