Eternal Life at Any Cost : A Posthumanist Thematic Study of Don DeLillo’s Novel Zero K (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to analyse the posthuman themes in Don DeLillo’s novel Zero K (2016). The themes focused upon are death in a posthuman context, and the creation of a new kind of human being. From a critical posthumanist perspective the novel’s underlying critique of contemporary society is also identified and analysed. The result of the study shows that Zero K can be read as critical towards the uneven distribution of wealth in the world, the strong focus on individuality in our current society and the lack of genuine discussions regarding the ethical implications of bio-technical advances.
