Companionship in grief : love and loss in the memoirs of C.S. Lewis, John Bayley, Donald Hall, Joan Didion, and Calvin Trillin by Jeffrey Berman( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Companionship in Grief, Jeffrey Berman focuses on the most life-changing event for many people--the death of a spouse. Some of the most acclaimed memoirs of the past fifty years offer insights into this profound loss: C.S. Lewis's A Grief Observed; John Bayley's three memoirs about Iris Murdoch, including Elegy for Iris; Donald Hall's The Best Day the Worst Day; Joan Didion's best-selling. The Year of Magical Thinking; and Calvin Trillin's About Alice. These books explore the nature of spousal bereavement, the importance of caregiving, the role of writing in recovery, and the possibility of falling in love again after a devastating loss. Throughout his study, Berman traces the theme of love and loss in all five memoirists' fictional and nonfictional writings as well as in those of their spouses, who were also accomplished writers." "Combining literary studies, grief and bereavement theory, attachment theory, composition studies, and trauma theory, Companionship in Grief will appeal to anyone who has experienced love and loss. Berman's research casts light on five remarkable marriages, showing how autobiographical stories of love and loss can memorialize deceased spouses and offer wisdom and comfort to readers." ""Jeffrey Berman's examination of each partner's writings gives this book its unique perspective. I know of no other work like his in thanatology; Companionship in Grief will make a significant contribution to persons interested in death, dying, and bereavement."--David Balk, editor-in-chief, Handbook of Thanatology: The Essential Body of Knowledge for the Study of Death, Dying, and Bereavement" ""This is a book that will be interesting to theorists of grief and grieving and to critics of contemporary British and American Literature while at the same time appealing to general readers who have themselves experienced crucial losses--or fear them."--Sandra M. Gilbert, author of Death's Door: Modern Dying and the Way We Grieve"--Jacket

The painted bed by Donald Hall( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Hall's fourteenth collection opens with an epigraph from the Urdu poet Faiz: "The true subject of poetry is the loss of the beloved." In that poetic tradition, as in The Painted Bed, the beloved might be a person or something else -- life itself, or the disappearing countryside. Hall's new poems further the themes of love, death, and mourning so powerfully introduced in his Without (1998), but from the distance of passed time. A long poem, "Daylilies on the Hill 1975-1989," moves back to the happy repossession of the poet's old family house and its history -- a structure that "persisted against assaults" as its generations of residents could not. These poems are by turns furious and resigned, spirited and despairing -- "mania is melancholy reversed," as Hall writes in another long poem, "Kill the Day." In this book's fourth and final section, "Ardor," the poet moves toward acceptance of new life in old age; eros reemerges
