Welcome

Each day, there are new blogs, websites and social media accounts dedicated to exploring topics of death, however, the vast majority of which are limited in scope, providing only one narrative that fits into the good or beautiful death. We believe that our death denying cultural attitudes will never change if we continue to keep death confined to pretty Victorian keepsakes, academic lectures and clever memes.

At Death & the Maiden, we strive to portray death in its entirety, and encourage our contributors and audience to confront this often challenging topic through science, literature, art, first person narratives, culture, history and current events.

Death has a face and it belongs to us all.
