Love in the Dark

Diane Enns

Columbia University Press

In this final, most lyrical section of the book, the author meditates on the experience of grief and loss after leaving a loved one against her will. Insights on the “place” we must create for grief and loneliness, the temporal tricks of mourning, and the survival of the death of love, arise through readings of narratives on grief, dying and survival by other philosophers and writers. The author’s own storehouse of memories lends to the analysis poignancy, particularity, and the unique voice of experience.
