Obviously, V. is a character in the book, known only by her initial. That initial is also the title of the book, which actually includes the period.

But I assume this title/name symbolizes something else too?

Wikipedia's article "V." only mentions one other meaning, the convergence of the two main plotlines, which seems a little tenuous. Other than that, this book is pretty hard to google.

  • As an unrelated comment, I was just reading V for Vendetta the week before, and V reads this exact book. I thought I should check it out, but never got to do it. And now, while typing a question, your post came up in suggested duplicates :) Mar 22, 2017 at 18:20

  • Isn't it also a reference to the V-Rockets of the nazis? The V2 to be precise?

  • @Swizzler Is it? That's news to me. Does it appear in this book at all? (It was written before Gravity's Rainbow.)

  • @tobiasvl my bad, I mixed up the timeline. This one is a nice interpretation: quora.com/…
