About this item

The first book-length study to focus on Don DeLillo’s plays, Staging Don DeLillo brings the author’s theatre works to the forefront. Rebecca Rey explores four central themes that emerge across DeLillo’s theatre oeuvre: the centrality of language; the human fear of death; the elusiveness of truth; and the deceptive, slippery nature of personal identity. Rey examines all seven of DeLillo’s plays chronologically: ‘The Engineer of Moonlight’ (1979), The Day Room (1986), the one-minute plays ‘The Rapture of the Athlete Assumed Into Heaven’ (1990), and ‘The Mystery at the Middle of Ordinary Life’ (2000), Valparaiso (1999), Love-Lies-Bleeding (2006), and The Word for Snow (2014). Written in clear, accessible language, and interweaving critique of DeLillo’s novels throughout, this book will appeal not only to DeLillo scholars but also to anyone working on contemporary literature and drama.
