An Analysis in Elisabeth Kubler-Ross' “On Death and Dying” Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D., in her book called, On Death and Dying discusses the fear that many people have about death. She states, “Death is still a fearful, frightening happing, and the fear of death is a universal fear even if we think we have mastered it on many levels” (19). Many people do not understand death nor do they understand the grieving process that often takes time. An analysis of the book, On Death and Dying, will show that the grieving process consists of five different stages and each of these stages are important in working through the feelings that people have when they have a terminal illness and when loved ones go through the grieving process. Understanding...The end:
.....cusses is that often family and friends believe that in a year a person should have gone through the grieving process. This belief is a myth because people will go through different stages and often go back through different stages. Sometimes on the anniversary of the death of a loved one, the person will be depressed without realizing that it is related to the loss of a family member or friend. Kubler-Ross creates a book that anyone who has terminal illness or who is going through the grieving process should read. I believe reading this book will make a difference in being a friend and in understanding others who have terminal illness or have a loved one die. Works Cited Kubler-Ross, Elisabeth.
