This thesis examines the plays of Don Delillo. Although Delillo's novels have received much critical discussion, his theatre works, with a few exceptions, have been largely ignored. Common themes emerging in his plays are the centrality of language, the human fear of death, the elusiveness of truth, and the deceptiveness of personal identity.
In order to provide a comprehensive critical analysis, I draw on a wide range of sources, including his novels, personal notes, interviews, and performance reviews. This is an original analysis of the plays, proving their literary worth, and hence providing an essential contribution to Delillo scholarship.
