In memory of James Anderson 1943-2009 (Within whom I have already passed)

"Death was represented not as an anthropomorphic figure, but as a macabre self-consciousness, a constant awareness of the gaping grave. It was not yet the skeleton man of the next century to whose music men and women will soon dance through the autumn of the Middle Ages, but rather each one's own ageing and rotting self. At this time the mirror became important in everyday life, and in the grip of the 'mirror of death' the 'world' acquired a hallucinating poignancy, with Chaucer and Villon, death becomes as intimate and sensual as pleasure and pain."

Quoted by Val Williams in The Dead, p.9
