"My aim in gathering these readings has been to counter the isolation that visits the bereaved in our society," writes Eleanor Munro in her wonderful introduction, "to remind us all that loss is the fundamental human experience, universally shared and collectively survived generation after generation." In Readings for Remembrance, she brings together a rich and thoughtful selection of writings from a vast range of sources--from scripture and hymns, Milton and Montaigne, to Stevens, D. H. Lawrence, and other modern and postmodern poets--as well as useful indexes and suggestions for music.Examining the ways we respond to death, the importance of memorial services and ritual, and how we pay tribute to loved ones, the writings collected here offer profound wisdom and solace for both reader and audience.
