Reading Advice for Don DeLillo s Underworld New York Scribner 1997 AMST 445 The Cold War and American Culture DeLillo s Underworld is a highly structured novel some find it extremely rewarding others find it daunting Every one will identify different parts of the novel as the best stuff the best way to find out is to read I don t want to spoil the reading experience but I think the following observations will help you situate yourself in the text without taking away very much of the surprises that are in store The novel is framed by a Prologue pp 11 60 and an Epilogue pp 785 827 The Prologue takes place in 1951 the Epilogue takes place in the Internet Age The Prologue is long and very different from the central parts of the novel so it s natural to feel a little disoriented moving from the Prologue into Part 1 The central body of the novel is divided into six parts which occur in reverse chronological order Part 1 SpringSummer 1992 Part 2 Mid 1980s Early 1990s Part 3 Spring 1978 Part 4 Summer 1974 Part 5 1950s and 1960s Part6 19511952 After each of the odd numbered parts is a Manx Martin section each of which is set in 1951 and concerned with characters that are only tangentially related to the characters in the main parts Manx Martin 1 pp 137 150 Manx Martin 2 pp 349 366 Manx Martin 3 pp 641 656 The Manx Martin sections read very much like the Prologue baseball fans and students of race relations will want to pay close attention to these Finally some pragmatic advice for those really pinched for time or for those who are really not DeLillo fans In Week 12 we will probably spend most of our time talking about Prologue Part 1 Part 2 especially chapters 15 In Week 13 we will probably spend most of our time talking about Part 5 Epilogue The cold war themes in the book are subtle at times overt at others They run the spectrum from conventional to original and controversial Read the novel as an organic whole we ll take it apart in class
