Book - Parent/Child
' "Suicide," writes the noted English poet and critic A. Alvarez, "has permeated Western culture like a dye that cannot be washed out." Although the aims of this compelling, compassionate book are broadly cultural and literary, the narrative is rooted in personal experience: it begins with a long memoir of Sylvia Plath, and ends with an account of the author's own sucide attempt. Within this dramatic framework, Alvarez launched his enquiry into the final taboo of human behavior, he traces changing attitues towards suicide from the perspective of literature. He follows the black thread leading from Dante through Donne and the romantic agony, to the Savage God at the heart of modern literature.' -From the Publisher
