We review and extend Lindsay's work on abstract gradient and divergence operators in Fock space over a general complex Hilbert space. Precise expressions for the domains are given, the L2-equivalence of norms is proved and an abstract version of the It^o-Skorohod isometry is established. We then outline a new proof of It^o's chaos expansion of complex Levy-It^o space in terms of multiple Wiener-Levy integrals based on Brownian motion and a compensated Poisson random measure. The duality transform now identies Levy-It^o space as a Fock space. We can then easily obtain key properties of the gradient and divergence of a general Levy process. In particular we establish maximal domains of these operators and obtain the It^o-Skorohod isometry on its maximal domain.
