LIFE AT THE END OF LIFE: FINDING WORDS BEYOND WORDS. Marcia Brennan. Intellect, Bristol, 2017. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect, University of Chicago Press. 200 pp. with 24 ills. 22 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781783206971 In English.
Due date: January 2017. Publisher's description: Artist and scholar Marcia Brennan serves as Artist in Residence at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and the experience of seeing, close-up, the transitional states and transformational visions involved in the approaching end of life raised countless questions about the intersection of life, death, and art. Those questions are at the heart of this unique book. Bridging disparate fields, including art history, medical humanities, and religious studies, Life at the End of Life explores the ways in which art can provide a means for rendering otherwise abstract, deeply personal, and spiritual experiences vividly concrete and communicable, even as they remain open-ended and transcendent. In the face of death, suffering, and uncertainty, Brennan shows how artistic expression can offer valuable aesthetic and metaphysical avenues for understanding and for making meaning.
