Summary This work brings together three authors who have written movingly about mourning: Dante Alighieri, Francesco Petrarca, and Marcel Proust. Jennifer Rushworth explores how each of them, through their respective narratives of bereavement, grapples with the challenge of how to write adequately about the deeply personal and painful experience of grief
