Abstract or Description

Published also under the short title 'Stars' this essay was written for Gunaratnam, Y. and A. Chandan (editors) A Jar of Wild Flowers: Essays in Honour of John Berger (2016) London: Zed. It concerns the concept of intensity in Berger's writing, not as a simple theatricality, nor a search for something truer to life, but is a philosophical stance that concerns political equality. It discusses this in relation to a moment in my own research in the cemetery in Santiago, Chile.
