Abstract

The article focuses on the American writer David Foster Wallace and his way of expressing emotions in his works. Topics discussed include Wallace using irony in his fictions to express genuine emotions, critics of his work reproducing Wallace's own thoughts to criticize him, and his books "Oblivion," and "Infinite Jest," and the unfinished novel "The Pale King." It also refers to the book "Mrs. Dalloway" by Virginia Woolf in comparison to deaths in Wallace's works.
