- We can order this
This method informs the structure of the book, which is divided into three sections. The first, entitled `Dasein', conceptualises how DeLillo's characters navigate between isolation and connection, shaping a particular enunciation of self which reflects the balance they strike between self and other. `Phenomenology', the second section, explores how DeLillo's treatment of language and image alters this balance and examines the sustainability of each enunciation of self. The final section, `Das Man', addresses how the language of self shapes, and is shaped by, a wider social context.
