Review by:
Richard W. Weiss, M.D.

Pollock, one of our most prolific authors and editors, has collected in two volumes his previously published works devoted to various aspects of mourning. Written between 1961 and 1987, the papers document his abiding interest in this topic which, he candidly acknowledges, was spurred in part by his mother's death.

In addition to an explication of Pollock's views on mourning and creativity, these volumes are a compilation and investigation of the wide range of cultural and individual responses to death.
