Description

What is the fate of objects after a death? And why do some things stay and some go from our lives and memories?""Objects of the Dead"" is about a universal and often poignant experience - the death of a loved one and the process of sorting through, living with, and discarding, the objects that are left behind. It looks at the status of objects as property, metaphors, symbols of love and identity, and the power of things to bind and unbind family relationships. This book is a remarkable reflection on grieving - of both saying goodbye and living with death.
