Abstract

Why do Pynchon's characters have the names that they do? The names are provocative, clever, funny, appropriate, bizarre, and multifarious, everyone seems to agree, but virtually no critic has inquired into the distinctive logic by which Pynchon impacts the significances he wants to reveal into the names he gives his characters.
