Kaplan, Kalman J.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v24 n3 p227-39 1991-92
Compares suicide in Greek tragedy and Hebrew Bible, concentrating on life situations portrayed in two sets of narratives promoting or preventing suicide. Notes frequency of suicides in Greek tragedy and infrequency of suicides in Bible. Compares stories of Narcissus and Jonah in attempt to pinpoint what is suicide-promoting in Greek narratives and what is suicide-preventing in Biblical ones. (Author/NB)
