Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture is a rich testament to our ubiquitous preoccupation with the tangled web of death and desire. In these pages we find nuanced analysis that blends Plato with Shelley, Hoelderlin with Foucault. Dollimore, a gifted thinker, is not content to summarize these texts from afar; instead, he weaves a thread through each to tell the magnificent story of the making of the modern individual.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Prodigiously intelligent, deeply challenging and ultimately rewarding...."
-"Publishers Weekly
"This is a work of breath-taking scope and reach. ...impressive command of sources and penetrating vision...."
-"Theological Studies
..."this immensely wide-ranging account repays careful study."
-"Library Journal
..."an impressively versatile survey... "Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture is a boldly transhistorical book from one who would lay claim to the title of cultural materialist."
-"London Review of Books, 16 April 1998
"In [Dollimore's] engaging study of death and its corresponding link to desire. . . . he offers a substantial contribution to Western intellectual history. . . . Dollimore presents a marvelous, enrapturing, and accessible work for both the scholar and the armchair philosopher."
-"Booklist, starred review
