About this item

Through eight essays, academics working in various fields at the University College Dublin and elsewhere consider how death is used by the living to confirm or challenge existing structures, values, or belief systems. They examine funerals of political and nationalist heroic figures in Ireland; funeral rites of the Grassfield people from Cameroon who are immigrants in Ireland; Pietro da Cortona, who reconstructed the Accademia di San Luca’s church of Santi Luca e Martina in Rome, and his tomb there; Gustave de Beaumont’s letters from Cannes and Memoir, Letters, and Remains of Alexis de Tocqueville after Tocqueville’s death; philosopher Josef Pieper’s views on death; human attitudes towards the death of animals; the connection between war, maps, and advertising; and Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s Berliner Requiem.
