The Crying of Lot 49

- Technology has long been recognized as a mixed blessing. Its up/downside nature was illustrated nicely in Walt Disney's Fantasia by the myth of the Sorcerer's Apprentice:not only does the "magic" of the machine produce what you desire, it often gives you much more than you can use--as Oedipa Maas, the heroine of this stark American fable, discovers on her frenetic Californian Odyssey. Information which strains to reveal Everything might well succeed only in conveying nothing, becoming practically indistinguishable from noise.But there is noise, and Noise....   [tags: The Crying of Lot 49 Essays]

Thomas Pynchon's The Crying Lot 49

- Peter Barry says of the cultural materialist approach to literature that “it is difficult to know how to ‘place’ writing of this kind” (189). By “writing” Barry refers to cultural materialist criticism itself—not the work being criticized—but it is probably safe to assume that the analysis properly reflects the analyzed in this respect. It is certainly arguable that Thomas Pynchon’s THE CRYING OF LOT 49 qualifies as “difficult to place,” and this may be its only legitimate connection offered to a cultural materialist reading....   [tags: Pynchon Crying Lot 49 Essays]

Thos Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49 - Embattled Underground

- The Crying of Lot 49: Embattled Underground In May of 1966, Richard Poirier wrote an article on Thomas Pynchon's latest novel at the time, The Crying of Lot 49. Clearly a fan of Pynchon's earlier novel V, Poirier praises what he calls another sample of Pynchon's "technical virtuosity" at "apocalyptic sat[ire]," of "saturnalian inventiveness" comparable to John Barth and Joseph Heller (Poirier 1). He admires Pynchon's adept confidence with philosophical and psychological concepts &endash; "his anthropological intimacy with the off-beat" (1)....   [tags: Crying Lot 49 Essays]

Symbolic Deconstruction in Thos Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49

- Symbolic Deconstruction in The Crying of Lot 49      The paths leading toward knowledge (of self, of others, of the world around us) are circuitous. Thomas Pynchon, in his novel The Crying of Lot 49, seems to attempt to lead the reader down several of these paths simultaneously in order to illustrate this point. Our reliance on symbols as efficient translators of complex notions is called into question. Beginning with the choice of symbolic or pseudo-symbolic name, Oedipa Maas, for the central character of his novel, Pynchon expands his own investigation of symbol as Oedipa also attempts to unravel the mysteries surrounding the muted horn of the Tristero....   [tags: Crying Lot 49 Essays]

As critics have shown, Pynchon blends factual history with fiction and manages, as David Seed writes in "The Fictional Labyrinths of Thomas Pynchon," to "juxtapose(s) historical references with reminders of the novel's status as artefact so that the reader's sense of history and of fiction are brought into maximum confrontation" (128)....   [tags: Crying Lot 49 Essays]

- The Disdainful Use of Names in Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49 While reading Pynchon’s, The Crying of Lot 49, I found myself fascinated with the names of the characters. I tried to analyze them and make them mean something, but it seems that Pynchon did not mean for the names to have a specific meaning. This deduction made me think about the satirical nature of the naming of the characters. Which led me to muse on the chaotic nature of the naming. The apparent disdain for the characters by their naming seems to imply that the author is poking fun at the reader and society through the characters....   [tags: Crying Lot 49 Essays]

The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon

- Whether a person’s life is something experienced authentically, or factually written down as literature, there are more complexities faced then there are simplicities on a daily basis. This multifariousness causes constant bewilderment and hesitation before any sort of important decision a person must make in his or her life. When it comes to characters of the written words, as soon sensations of ambiguity, uncertainty, and paranoia form, the outlook and actions of these characters are what usually result in regrettable decisions and added anxiety for both that character as well as the reader....   [tags: oedipa mass, paranoia]

The reader is drawn into the story and also affected by the world created by the author. Both the reader and the characters have the same problems observing the chaos around them.

The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon

- In Thomas Pynchon’s novel The Crying of Lot 49, we meet Oedipa Maas; she travels down a rabbit hole of her own making, like Lewis Carrols Alice, from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Where Alice comes to self realization, Oedipa’s life ends up falling apart as she becomes more and more isolated and ends up with no closure. She goes through her life, in this story, assigning importance to things that may not be important at all, making a picture into a puzzle. In Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice is thrown into situations in a strange world where she believes she can make sense of it all but always ends up frustrated....   [tags: oedipa maas, stereotypical housewife]

This in turn leads to a deviant sub-cultural group which competes with the institutionalized authorities for power. Deviance in both novels is usually defined as a certain type of behaviour, such as an inebriated professor babbling on in a lecture hall filled with students or a group of teenagers frolicking naked in a city park on a hot and sunny afternoon.
