Preparation for publication of a translation with introduction and annotations of Das Buch gegen den Tod (The Book Against Death), by the Bulgarian Nobel Prize-winning author Elias Canetti (1905-1994).

Elias Canetti's Das Buch gegen den Tod (The Book Against Death) collects 47 years of his aphorisms on the meaning, nature, and consequence of death for himself and a wide variety of writers, cultures, and eras, and was first published in German in 2014. Based on the German publication, my translation will be the first in English and will be accompanied by an introduction and notes providing background on historical events, allusions to other writers, and Canetti's life and work. The result will be a volume of ca. 350 pages recording Canetti's most intimate thinking on death and life itself.
