Last Letters

Abstract : This collection of essays is devoted to last letters: letters sent - or not - to sever a relationship, to mark the end of a phase in one's life, or letters written by people about to be executed or commit suicide just before their deaths. Conversely, some of the letters analysed are fictional, and still other forms of texts, such as poems, are considered ultimate messages by the authors of the articles. By focussing on various forms of last letters, the contributors aim to define the influence of the epistolary context on endings and to provide an original approach to closure.
