Summary
If the academic field of death studies is a prosperous one, there still seems to be a level of mistrust concerning the capacity of literature to provide socially relevant information about death and to help improve the anthropological understanding of how culture is shaped by the human condition of mortality.

As such, this approach has a propensity to consider death in literature to be significant only for literary studies,
