Some Things That “Happen” (More or Less) in Gravity’s Rainbow
“This guide was originally created around 1980, when I assigned Gravity’s Rainbow as the final reading (on which a final paper was required) in a Williams College course called ‘Images of History in American Literature’–and then recognized that I’d better do more than I’d planned to help my students actually get through the book! The guide seemed to provide the help they needed… What follows is, in a sense, designed as a ‘plot summary.’ But it is designed as an accompaniment to a reading of Gravity’s Rainbow–and to be useless as a substitute for a reading of the book.”
