Book excerpt: "Through postmodern analyses, it is shown that there is an attempt to deconstruct the idea of death in Delillo's White Noise. A psychoanalytical reading of this novel, however, appears to show a detailed description of Freud's theory of the death instinct rather than a deconstruction of death." Student paper.

Download or read book Death in Don DeLillo's 'White Noise' written by Jan Riepe. This book was released on 2005-05-06. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,5, University of Freiburg (Englisches Seminar), course: Proseminar "Postmodern American Fiction after 1975", 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the following pages I will discuss the role of Death in Don DeLillo’s “White Noise” and I will show that the protagonist, Jack Gladney, is not only obsessed with death, but that fear and obsession are the main driving forces in his life. Further it is the aim of this paper to show that Jack Gladney goes through a change, which results in him being able to cope with his fear and that DeLillo holds technology responsible for Jack’s obsessive fear. In order to support the thesis of this paper I will analyze the role that death plays in Jack’s life in regard to his family, his job, consumption and technology. To support the thesis of Jack going through a change I will discuss Jack’s relationship to death before and after the exposure to the chemical spillage and, most important, before and after Jack’s being “nearer to death”, when attempting to kill Willie Mink. Concluding, I will look at the novel’s link between death and technology. Jack Gladney lives with his wife Babette and their children from previous marriages in a house at the end of a quiet street in the quiet town of Blacksmith. He is head of the department of Hilter Studies at the College-on-the-Hill. Jack has specialized on Hitler and built a whole department around this single figure of history. In academic circles he is widely known as the leading expert on Hitler and his articles are printed in the appropriate journals. But Jack neither reads nor speaks the German language, a fact he desperately tries to keep a secret. He hides behind his dark glasses and academic robe. [...]

Book Synopsis White Noise by : Don DeLillo

Download or read book White Noise written by Don DeLillo. This book was released on 2011-11-21. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Now a major new Netflix film from Noah Baumbach, starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig How strange it is. We have these deep terrible lingering fears about ourselves and the people we love. Yet we walk around, talk to people, eat and drink. We manage to function. The feelings are deep and real. Shouldn’t they paralyze us? Jack Gladney is the creator and chairman of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill. This is the story of his absurd life; a life that is going well enough, until a chemical spill from a train carriage releases an ‘Airborne Toxic Event’ and Jack is forced to confront his biggest fear – his own mortality. White Noise is an effortless combination of social satire and metaphysical dilemma in which Don DeLillo exposes our rampant consumerism, media saturation and novelty intellectualism. It captures the particular strangeness of life lived when the fear of death cannot be denied, repressed or obscured and ponders the role of the family in a time when the very meaning of our existence is under threat. ‘America’s greatest living writer.’ – Observer Part of the Picador Collection, a series showcasing the best of modern literature.
