"Spargo challenges traditional ideas about mourning."

"Engaging and wide-ranging study."

"A book of remarkable breadth and acuity, Spargo's The Ethics of Mourning powerfully reorients critical discussion of the elegy away from the survivor's inner struggle for consolation to the dialogic relation between the survivor and the dead. In a series of bracing, rigorous, and unflinching readings, this book explores the ethics of mourning with more philosophical vigor and literary reach than any critical work to date."
