A Good Death?
Yesterday on Radio Four there was an interesting discussion of palliative care on the regular You and Yours program. For me it brought to mind this image by Ferdinand Hodler. Painted in 1915, The Dying Valentine Godé-Darel shows only one image of many which portray death and dying. The show discussed ideas surrounding attitudes to death and what might constitute a 'good death'. You can listen to it again here.
