Dying in the first person

Excellent Eliane Brum* text on El País about the death taboo that has consolidated with the 20th Century and the new look that emerges about the end of life

“Death is filled with life and humanities. There are many ways of thinking about it as living and dead people. The beauty, even when brutal, is when narratives are able to face the complexity of this moment, with all ambiguous feelings and  present contradictions. It would be a pitty, afterall, to reduce  such a deep and irreversible moment to a poor manual of “good death”. As in the sentence I love: “Death is not the opposite of life, death is the opposite of birth. Life has no opposites”.
