From Eurydice to Laura and beyond, dead lovers call forth powerful expressions of grief, sorrow, love, and longing. They occasion mourning and other rituals and seem to be intrinsically bound up with changing ideas of subjecthood itself. Dead Lovers explores the complex attachments to the figure of the dead lover in Western literature, art, and other forms of cultural expression from classical antiquity through the Middle Ages and into the early modern period.

By reflecting on the study of dead lovers, these essays also trace the development of themes and claims relating to our own investment in a "dead" but eroticized past that we seek to recover. The collection offers a sustained discussion of how scholarly interest in the representation of loss and erotic bonds raises pressing questions about nostalgia, performance, the role of affect in intellectual work, and the gendered cultural values that script the description and experience of the erotic. In its focus on loss as a site of affect and imagination, Dead Lovers offers an original and provocative contribution to the history of scholarship.

"A cross-disciplinary book that will provoke discussion about how we think of our own academic practices and our investment in them. The substance of the essays is cultural and literary history and aesthetics, informed by theoretical concerns, but not overdetermined by them. Readers from all of the fields touched upon in the book will learn from it." - Sara S. Poor, Department of German, Princeton University "Dead Lovers features a series of innovative and brilliant insights that help us rethink traditions ranging from literatures of longing, nostalgia and necrophelia, to the metaphysics of memory and relationality in both premodern and contemporary contexts. This genuinely exceptional book is a must-read for anyone thinking through what it may mean, or have meant, to love in the face of death."
- Carla Mazzio, Department of English, University of Chicago
