    • Abstract:
      Presents literary criticism of the novels "The Unnamable" by Samuel Beckett and "Underworld" by Don DeLillo is presented. The entry defines waste and abundance as the defining opposition of temporary culture and presents the argument that abundance wastes when waste becomes abundant. It cites that recycling is both a practice of late capitalism and a literary device to make waste useful again.
