Title

Robert Cormier on After the First Death

Description

In this piece, Robert Cormier reflects on the influences at work in After the First Death. He discusses the type of person who could commit a terrorist act, and yet who could still see himself or herself as a hero or a patriot. In such a case, innocence would be reconceived as monstrous. The novel also let Cormier explore the stereotypical cheerleader character as the center for sexual fantasy and a love story. After the First Death, like much of Cormier's work, deals with parent-child relationships - filled with emotion and betrayal. These factors came together in the writing of the piece but ended up taking their own course to a different destination than Cormier intended.
