Taking Next Steps: Gerontological Education, Research, and the Literary Imagination.
Holstein, Martha
Gerontologist, v34 n6 p822-27 Dec 1994
Interprets two literary works--both about old women who have suffered strokes and are near death--and argues that literature can make contributions to gerontology by developing sensitivity to theory, empathy, and self-awareness. Examines these fictional accounts against two perspectives--political economy of aging and theories of personal meaning--and encourages epistemological experimentation. (51 references) (Author/BF)
