Abstract
Cosmopolis may be Don DeLillo’s most harshly reviewed book, but that is partly due to the application by reviewers of inappropriately naturalistic standards of storytelling. Cosmopolis is actually a graphic novel without the pictures, a mythopoetic vision of a moment of crisis in American history, and the portrait of a great American supervillain. Understanding Cosmopolis in this way explains both why the book was hard for some readers to like and why it will be the first of DeLillo’s novels to make it onto the big screen.
