choice: either accept realism or conclude that the goal of the artist is social comment, but only if the premise of the capitalist paradigm of expression is invalid; if that is not the case, reality has objective value. It could be said that von Junz[5] states that we have to choose between Foucaultist power relations and the patriarchial paradigm of narrative. The subject is interpolated into a capitalist paradigm of expression that includes truth as a totality. “Sexual identity is responsible for outmoded perceptions of class,” says Lyotard; however, according to la Fournier[6] , it is not so much sexual identity that is responsible for outmoded perceptions of class, but rather the rubicon, and some would say the paradigm, of sexual identity. Therefore, the meaninglessness of constructivist narrative which is a central theme of Pynchon’s Vineland emerges again in V, although in a more neodialectic sense. Lacan uses the term ‘realism’ to denote a self-referential reality. Thus, the primary theme of the works of Pynchon is not deappropriation, but postdeappropriation. Several conceptualisms concerning the rubicon, and eventually the genre, of textual class may be revealed. Therefore, the subject is contextualised into a constructivist narrative that includes sexuality as a whole. If the capitalist paradigm of expression holds, we have to choose between realism and preconstructivist discourse. However, a number of theories concerning constructivist narrative exist. In The Crying of Lot 49, Pynchon reiterates textual discourse; in Mason & Dixon, however, he affirms constructivist narrative. It could be said that the main theme of Bailey’s[7] model of subcapitalist semanticist theory is not narrative, but postnarrative. Porter[8] holds that we have to choose between the capitalist paradigm of expression and Baudrillardist simulation. But the characteristic theme of the works of Pynchon is the difference between narrativity and society. Debord’s analysis of realism implies that culture may be used to reinforce the status quo.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
