Don Delillo: The Physics of Language
David CowartISBN: 0820325813;
Book DescriptionIn this revised edition, David Cowart discusses Don DeLillo's thirteen novels, including his latest, Cosmopolis, and explores the ways in which DeLillo's art anticipates, parallels, and contests ideas that have become the common currency of poststructuralist theory. Cowart argues that the major site of DeLillo's engagement with postmodernism is language, which DeLillo represents as more mysterious--numinous even--than current theory allows. For DeLillo, language remains what Cowart calls "the ground of all making."
