Bearing the dead : the British culture of mourning from the enlightenment to Victoria by Esther H Schor( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the textual and social practices of the British Enlightenment and its early nineteenth-century heirs, Schor uncovers the ways in which mourning mediated between received ideas of virtue, both classical and Christian, and a burgeoning, property-based commercial society. The circulation of sympathies maps the means by which both valued things and values themselves are distributed within a culture. Delving into philosophy, politics, economics, and social history as well as literary texts, Schor traces a shift in the British discourse of mourning in the wake of the French Revolution: What begins as a way to effect a moral consensus in society turns into a means of conceiving and bringing forth history. Culminating in a comparison between Victorian and Enlightenment cultures of mourning, her book provides powerful evidence that even as we give life to the dead, the dead shape the lives we are able to live
