Abstract


It ought to be stressed that Barth and Pynchon are technical virtuosi. They are bestowed with the talent to employ the literary tools and devices with functional valuations and variations. Furthermore, the Weltanschauung of Barth and Pynchon is deeply colored but not totally obtruded by the stresses and strains Sturmund-Drang the tensions and anxieties Angst experienced by men and women. Barth and Pynchon capture as it were the very pulse of the present world, which has witnessed two Global Wars, the Wall Street Crash, the Great depression, the anomie and the great accent placed on materialism.
