Death and Desire in Contemporary Japan

novità editoriale - giugno 2017

De Antoni Andrea e Raveri Massimo (edited by), Death and Desire in Contemporary Japan. Practicing, Representing, Performing, Ca' Foscari Japanese Studies 6, Edizioni Ca' Foscari, 2017

The title refers to the Buddhist concepts of suffering and impermanence, which link the ideas of death and desire. Research has generally tended to focus on the institutionalized death. But this book deals with the untamed death and the cases in which unsettled death intrudes the social.
