The Dynamic, Clinical Use of Imagery to Promote Psychotherapeutic Grieving
WithJames K. Morrison
Pages 26

Richard Kalish (1965) has compared the general public’s avoidance of the topic of death to their former attitude toward pornography:

We react to it [death] and its symbols in the same way as we react to any pornography. We protect little children from observing it and dodge their questions about it. We speak of it only in whispers. We consider it horrible, ugly and grotesque (p. 62).
