about

Why do the dead return? Do they remain part of the world of the living? This book examines these questions as they emerge in areas as diverse as film, Holocaust testimony, and the works of Jacques Derrida, Nicolas Abraham and Maria Torok. The book suggests it may be as difficult for the living to get rid of the dead as it is to live without them.
COLIN DAVIS is Professor of French at Royal Holloway, University of London, UK. He has previously held posts at the Universities of Oxford and Warwick. His principal research interests lie in the areas of modern French thought, literature and film.
