In the opening pages of the novel Willie Lincoln is dying of typhoid fever while his parents must host a. large state dinner in the White House After Willie dies Abraham Lincoln attempts to grapple with his loss. by visiting his dead son s crypt opening the casket and holding his beloved son s body This act deeply. affects several of the spirits inhabiting the charnel ground but Willie is disturbed by the sight Now a. disembodied spirit Willie looks down upon his father and his own unrecognized body unaware that he is. dead Why does his father walk away abandoning him, Saunders has defined the bardo as a transitional state between lives but the concept can apply. more widely to a number of liminal situations According to some Tibetan Buddhist teachings everyday life. the shinay bardo the dreams that come between one day and the next the milam bardo and the bardo. of meditative experience the samten bardo are all moments in which in which beings struggle for clarity. though these lesser known bardos are thought to be less consequential than the purgatorial term between. lives A traveler stuck in an airport due to a missed flight is in a kind of bardo a period of uncertainty While. the novel is centered on the travail of Willie Lincoln the boy s spiritual journey is artfully linked to that of all. the other characters in this novel and perhaps to the whole of American life that is shaped by Abraham. Lincoln s choices, Like Willie the President finds himself caught between possibilities The elder Lincoln faces crises.
that are at once spiritual psychological and political In late February 1862 just after Grant s capture of. Fort Donelson the Civil War was beginning to metastasize into a new kind of war the catastrophe that. would claim over 600 000 American lives During the course of the novel the ten worst battles were yet to. happen Saunders takes us into the agonized heart of Lincoln as he struggles with what he should do. Readers and hearers of Lincoln in the Bardo may find the central organizing metaphor to be quite. timely In response to the political rallies of a more recent politician Saunders in early 2016 wrote that he. had never before imagined America as fragile as an experiment that could within my very lifetime fail. Spiritually engaged and unfailingly intelligent Lincoln in the Bardoappreciates profoundly the fragility of our. individual lives and of our communal way of life, With the kind permission of the writer The Postmortem Players have come together to perform a reading. of Lincoln in the Bardo for the American Literature Association.
