The Oxford Book of Death Paperback / softback
Edited by D. J. (Poet and Literary Critic) Enright
Part of the Oxford Books of Prose & Verse series
The inescapable reality of death has given rise to much of literature's most profound and moving work.
D. J. Enright's wonderfully eclectic selection presents the words of poet and novelist, scientist and philosopher, mystic and sceptic. And alongside these 'professional' writers, he allows the voices of ordinary people to be heard; for this is a subject on which there are no real experts and wisdom lies in many unexpected places.
