Literary Views of the Isolated Elderly.
Loughman, Celeste
Educational Gerontology, v5 n3 p249-57 Jul 1980
Contemporary literature treats old age pessimistically. Literary portrayals emphasize the difficulty of living a meaningful life when self-worth and the will to live are undermined by the way the old are treated. The isolated elderly live lives without pleasure or hope. (Author)
