Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a product review. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Hewett is an experienced rhetorician, grief counseling trainer, and writing instructor. Her expertise in these areas shines brightly in Good Words. She begins with a general description of the style and intent of eulogies from ancient times until the modern day, and follows through with detailed instructions on the process of writing the eulogy.
The expectations for the styles of eulogies for different situations - religions and cultural backgrounds as well as the age of the deceased and the relationship of the bereaved to the deceased - are covered in detail so that the bereaved can provide a eulogy appropriate to the situation.
Different strategies are provided to custom-tailor the eulogy to the circumstances of death as well as the experiences of the mourners with the deceased in their lives. Hewett's biggest strength is her ability to convey her own experiences with grief to the reader. The reader, presumably suffering from the loss of a loved one themselves, will find that they are not alone in mourning. This is essential, since grief can be a collage of hurt, a fog of emotion that makes the bereaved feel alone and confused.
Mourning is a natural experience that everyone must face at some time in their lives, and Good Words contextualizes this experience for the reader as a very natural, human process.
Hewett illuminates that what can be a confusing and devastating period in life can be transformed into a healing process for the author of the eulogy and the other mourners who will hear the eulogy. She does not lecture, she walks through the mourning process with the reader. Good Words is not pedantic, but consoling. This is no mere style manual - it is a guidebook for coping with the death of a loved one as well as a guide to the content and style of the contemporary eulogy.
