Death and the Ploughman
An ordinary farm labourer's wife and unborn child die in childbirth. Unable to accept this cruelty, the ploughman sues Death, who duly appears to answer the charges. Although written in 1401, Death and the Ploughman
perfectly sums up the attitude we still have towards grief, and the arrogance still innate in man which belies his own environment and mortality. Runner up of the Gate Translation Award 2002.
