I have heard that Pynchon uses a lot of esoteric subject matter to provide meaning in his books. Is there any need to do outside research to understand what he is trying to say? To make it easier, I plan to read his novels in order of publication. Since it is claimed he repeatedly uses the same symbolism and develops the same ideas, this should help right?
