Opera: The Art of Dying (Convergences free pdf Our modern narratives of science and technology can only go so far in teaching us about the death that we must all finally face. Might opera, an art form steeped in death, teach us how to die, as this provocative work suggests? In Opera: The Art of Dying a physician and a literary theorist bring together scientific and humanistic perspectives on the lessons on living and dying that this extravagant and seemingly artificial art imparts.
