Ageing is much more than a biomedical process, it also connects with social, economic, psychological, political and cultural aspects. The literary depictions of ageing improve our understanding of elements such as fear of decrepitude, loss of creativity, death, intergenerational relationships and sustainability of an individual’s quality of life. In this book, writers and academics debate topics of crucial importance for our current societies through a series of articles and interviews that reflect positive attitudes towards the ageing process.
