Mourning the death of loved ones and recovering from their loss are universal human experiences, yet the grieving process is as different between cultures as it is among individuals. As late as the 1960s, the Wari' Indians of the western Amazonian rainforest ate the roasted flesh of their dead as an expression of compassion for the deceased and for his or her close relatives. By removing and transforming the corpse, which embodied ties between the living and the dead and was a focus of grief for the family of the deceased, Wari' death rites helped the bereaved kin accept their loss and go on with their lives. Drawing on the recollections of Wari' elders who participated in consuming the dead, this book presents one of the richest, most authoritative ethnographic accounts of funerary cannibalism ever recorded. Beth Conklin explores Wari' conceptions of person, body, and spirit, as well as indigenous understandings of memory and emotion, to explain why the Wari' felt that corpses must be destroyed and why they preferred cannibalism over cremation. Her findings challenge many commonly held beliefs about cannibalism and show why, in Wari' terms, it was considered the most honorable and compassionate way of treating the dead.

It all happened so minute it seemed life was as usual, the next all those I hold dear were thrown into a dark, unchartered sea of grief . Like a raging storm we were cast into an ocean of unforgiving doom. Franticly we sought direction which lead all too quickly to a place with only the grey rain clouds of bereavement. At some point in my own desperation to cope with the raging sea enveloping me I searched for a guide in vain. My only understanding of the storm I was battling came from the wise words bestowed on me from friends...I was lucky to be able to appreciate a glimmer of understanding, simply by knowing I was not the only person to have passed through a storm such as the one found when journeying through a place called grief. Grief in all its black doom is a personal process each of us has to encounter individually. It is only how we manifest every stage that is unique. My wish is that this book will provide an island for those who read it, a break in the storm and an opportunity to collect yourself. Absent feet started as a journal - simply for myself, to contend with the voyage I was unwittingly on. It has eventuate into a guide which I sincerely hope will be a lighthouse to those in need of light on the journey of bereavement.

Fredman makes the original argument that some of the most innovative works of poetry and art in the postwar period (1945–1970) engaged in a "contextual practice," a term that refers both to a way of making art characterized by assemblage and to a new relationship between art and life, an "erotic poetics."
