Response to Death presents a literary historical perspective on mourning, tracing examples of mourning in literary works from the medieval world to the present day. Contributors offer a chronological examination of the concept of the work of mourning in specific literary and historical contexts, beginning with an exploration of the medieval York Cycle of plays and sixteenth-century French women's lyric, and continuing through the Renaissance with considerations of Shakespeare, the nineteenth century, and into the twentieth century.
