Imagining Ageing

Representation of Age and Ageing in the Anglophone Literature

What do literary texts tell us about growing old? The essays in this volume introduce and explore representations of ageing and old age in canonical works of English and Postcolonial Literature. The contributors take a look at texts by William Shakespeare, Daniel Defoe, Julian Barnes, Thomas Kinsella, Seamus Heaney, J.M. Coetzee, Alice Munro, Withi Ihimaera and Patricia Grace and suggest solutions – with the help of a Medical study – to the challenges that come with the current demographic change brought about by ageing Western populations.
