eBook - 1995
Rate this:
Engel (English, Vanderbilt U.) presents a cultural study of how men and women in early modern England confronted, accommodated, and paid tribute to mortal life and certain death through the media of prose and poetry, paintings and statuary, social practices, and religious rites. He finds their attitude based on a notion of the relationship between the body as vehicle and the soul as that which is transported. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
