Abstract:

"Literary Remains explores the unexpectedly central role of death and burial in Victorian England. Locating corpses at the center of an extensive range of concerns, including money and law, medicine and urban architecture, social planning and folklore, religion and national identity, Mary Elizabeth Hotz draws on a range of legal, administrative, journalistic, and literary writing to offer a thoughtful meditation on Victorian attitudes toward death and burial, as well as how those attitudes influenced present-day death-way practices. Literary Remains gives new meaning to the phrase that serves as its significant theme: "Taught by death what life should be.""--Jacket.
