Infollowing the posthumous publication of William Gaddis' collec /5(3). Several books on Gaddis have been published, among the ones I own being Carnival of Repetition, by John Johnson, and The Ethics of Indeterminacy in the Novels of William Gaddis, by Gregory Comnes.

The chapters on Gaddis in Tom LeClair's The Art of Excess and Susan Strehle's Fiction in the Quantum Universe are also very good. The Letters of William Gaddis (); E. Safer, The Contemporary American Comic Epic: The Novels of Barth, Pynchon, Gaddis, and Kesey (); J.

Johnston, Carnival of Repetition (); G. Comnes, The Ethics of Indeterminacy in the Novels of William Gaddis (). Gaddis, William, –98, American novelist, b. New York City. An erudite master of satire and black comedy, he was both praised and criticized for his avant-garde techniques—repetitions, multiple layers of meaning, sprawling shapelessness, frequent digressions, complexities of plot and language that can veer into incomprehensibility, and the exhausting length of his works.

Carnival of Repetition, by John Johnston, and The Ethics of Indeterminacy in the Novels of William Gaddis, by Gregory Comnes, provide examples of both the benefits and the perils of such an approach. Both studies do illuminate Gaddis's work, but they pay short shrift to the aspects of Gaddis's fiction that resist theory's linguistic vertigo.

The richness of allegorical content in William Gaddis's Carpenter's Gothic is evident in the first paragraph of the novel, where "a kind of battered shuttlecock," actually a dead dove, is being hit "over a bough," "caught and flung," and "hit again into a swirl of leaves" by small boys, one of them "wiping mud from his cheek where it hit him," until it is finally slammed into a "yellow dead.
