Throughout my study on death and in examination of the work of Laura Esquivel’s Como Agua Para Chocolate I have found a clear distinction in the way Mexican culture has celebrated and accepted death in comparison with the culture of the United States that has had clear fear of it. Because of years of the differing cultures ways of presenting the subject today we have two cultures close in proximity but at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of all cultural and societal ideas of death.
