Death In Our Times (In Literary Terms)
"Death may be unchanging, but the human experience of it isn't. If every age has its style of dying, its moral-ethical and literary view of it, from the "tame death" to the "beautiful death," ours is surely the age of the "protracted death" -- a slow, medicalized end, portrayed in documentary detail."
