Death is a subject of increasing interest in virtually all academic disciplines, yet there is surprisingly little theoretical work on the representation of death in literary contexts. Death and Representation offers a unique collection of international and interdisciplinary essays, rich in cultural perspectives but sharing a relatively common vocabulary. It provides models for a number of interrelated approaches―including psychoanalytic, feminist, and historical―with essays by prominent and promising scholars. Contributors are Ernst van Alphen, Mieke Bal, Regina Barreca, Elisabeth Bronfen, Carol Christ, Sander Gilman, Sarah Webster Goodwin, Margaret Higonnet, Regina Janes, Ellie Ragland-Sullivan, Rajeswari Sunder Rajan, Ronald Schleifer, Charles Segal, and Garrett Stewart.

From the Back Cover:

The essays in Death and Representation trace the multifarious ways in which death is both unknowable and repeatedly constructed. In so doing, the collection shows how thematic--as an issue in scholarly research--can serve as a platform for interdisciplinary discussions.

Review:

"Scholarly, sensitive, and provocative inquiries into ways of revisioning and broadening people's understanding of the final exit."

(World Literature Today)
