Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture by Jonathan Dollimore

From the eloquence of the philosophers of the ancient world, the early Christian theologians and the Jacobeans' obsession with death, through to the legacy of the 19th-century philosophers and the major thinkers of the 20th century, this text traces mankind's preoccupation with desire's fatal, paradoxical involvement with death.
