(p.95) 5 Emotions and Literature
Children Remembered
Liverpool University Press

This chapter, which focuses on literary evidence, examines whether it is possible to use literary works as a way of describing changing attitudes to the deaths of children since the sixteenth century. It deals mainly with elegies, a form of poetry intended for the intense expression of emotions. Unlike the novel, the elegy has a long and continuous history, especially in English.

Keywords:   literary works, death, children, child mortality, elegies, poetry
