The Grim Reaper is coming! But this time, instead of his trademark scythe, he's bringing a copy of Death, the Fall 2013 issue of Lapham's Quarterly. On newsstands September 15, we're taking you to the grave--and beyond.
We've got John Donne and his tolling bell, Clara Barton and the horrors of the battlefield, and an important lesson on how to avoid being buried alive.
Charts and graphs settle questions like: how do we die? What happens when we die? What kinds of parties do our friends throw when we die?
Essays include Brent Cunningham on last meals, Virginia Morell on animal grief, and Bess Lovejoy's reconsideration of The American Way of Death.
