                               in Western Literature

"During the five thousand years of known literary expression, save for several hundred years of silence, authors have achieved all manner of technique in the connecting of death and death’s sphere of significance...."

"We all desire to find meaning, the sense of dying and death. Fighting, fearing death is of no value in the scheme of living. Literary consideration of death is a challenging concept that each writer approaches according to his own set of cultural beliefs, experiences, observations, and imagination..."
