A lecture that discusses the lamentation of the dead in written and oral poetry from Homer and the Bible to recent times, by way of Shakespeare, Milton and the Serbian epics. It puts forward the view that The Lament for Arthur O'Leary, composed by Eileen O'Connell, is among the finest examples of the lamentation of the dead."
