9780099548584: The Undiscovered Country: Journeys Among the Dead
Review:

"A first-class study of British attitudes to death and dying from the Middle Ages to the 20th century... A fascinating work of social history that is both scholarly and accessible to general readers " ( Financial Times)

"Watkins has a gift for conveying a feeling of place, and is good at conjuring up the dead, lifting the veil so that we can have a peek into the grave and beyond" ( Good Book Guide)

"Outstanding ... This may be a book about death but, paradoxically, it is one filled with intelligence and life" ( Sunday Times)

"Superbly written, shows how the meaning of life is still everywhere connected to what it means to die" (Ian Thomson Financial Times)

"A sensitive and fascinating history of an "undiscovered country" which, in many ways, mirrors the story of Britain" (John Gallagher Sunday Telegraph)

He wears his research lightly as he journeys around the British landscape, teasing out themes and cultural shifts from the particulars of individual lives" -- Iain Sinclair Guardian

Descripción Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a wonderful book: curious and insightful . (Ian Mortimer, author of The Time Traveller s Guide to Medieval England). We know what happens to the body when we die, but what happens to the soul?

The result is an enthralling journey into Britain s past, from medieval hauntings on the Yorkshire moors and eccentric memorials on the Cornish coast to seances in Victorian kitchens and gallows tales from a Bristol gaol. Impeccably researched and elegantly told, The Undiscovered Country ventures beyond the veil to bring the dead back to life. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780099548584
