One of the most famous opening lines in literature might as well refer to the novel it sets off – Gravity's Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon's masterpiece, marks an event in literary history whose significance readers have argued and will argue for a long time, but which nobody can afford to ignore. Published in 1973, it is often considered as the postmodern novel, redefining both postmodernism and the novel in general. It is also often considered to be unreadable; add “turgid”, “overwritten,” and “obscene” to that, and you get the verdict of the Pulitzer Prize advisory board in 1974.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Pöhlmann, Sascha</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Pöhlmann, Sascha</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2006-10-24</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-01-17T13:47:34Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Thomas Pynchon : Gravity's Rainbow</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2020-01-17T13:47:34Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
