Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book unites an eclectic collection, illustrating that since the days of Gilgamesh, death and human expression have grown together like entwined vines. Man's preoccupation with death becomes lovingly embraced without acquiring either a too morbid or an overly antiseptic tone... an extremely valuable depository of expert writings." -- CHELSEA No.62, 1997

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Academic conferences serve to highlight the superb ideas and writing styles of a few, talented academic writers.
Unfortunately, conferences also force participants to slog through days of other, stodgy, tedious, and inaccessible essays painfully read aloud by professors who wouldn't know "voice modulation" if it climbed down their throat and bit their vocal cords.
Having attended a number of these conferences, I feel confident that this is typical of most of them.
It's also the status quo when it comes to this collection of conference essays.
First Prize!
The collection begins with a bang from pop-culture-referencing Katherine Sutherland who does an excellent job of channeling Camille Paglia's snide sarcasm without the vehemently anti-liberal mentality. A dizzying, wonderfully readable ride on the Gen-X vs. Baby Boomer roller coaster.
Honorable mentions?
A fascinating essay from Kathleen N. Gurnett on the grisly state of Victorian-era cemeteries, charnel houses and executions and why YOU should know this to appreciate _Frankenstein_.
From out the mouth of a literature professor, a tribute to colonial viciousness, and outright lying, when it came to Aztecs and their strange ways. Grisly descriptions of sacrifice a PLUS.
I encourage you to buy this collection for these gems, OR if your particular interests lie in academic writing.
