The purpose of this paper is to analyze the meanings of the Wall and people who live in the Wall in Don DeLillo’s Underworld. The Wall is a boundary line which is made to exclude and alienate those who live in the Wall and who are exposed to indiscriminate violences from outside the Wall. People who live in the Wall are similar to Homo Sacer, which is the term used in Homo Sacer by Agamben. They are considered to spray their diseases by being touched such as taboo and are placed in the zone of indistinction, where people are constantly threatened to be killed but, they have no protection at anywhere. The death of Esmeralda being watched through the internet is the typical example of showing how people live in the Wall. Ismael painting the dead on the Wall tries to accept the effects of capital as well as to sympathize the dead as the leader of those who live in the Wall. Sister Edgar believes that she is the one who attains redemption and peace of mind through Esmeralda’s dead face on the billboard.
