What do literary texts tell us about growing old? The essays in this volume introduce and explore representations of aging and old age in canonical works of English and postcolonial literature.
The contributors examine texts by William Shakespeare, Daniel Defoe, Julian Barnes, Thomas Kinsella, Seamus Heaney, J.
