Premature burial, also known as live burial, burial alive, or vivisepulture, means to be buried while still alive. Animals or humans may be buried alive accidentally on the mistaken assumption that they are dead, or intentionally as a form of torture, murder, or execution. It may also occur with consent of the victim as a part of a stunt, with the intention to escape. Fear of being buried alive is reported to be among the most common phobias.
The Premature Burial (1844), a horror story written by the master of horror, Edgar Allan Poe, tells the story of a man who is so obsessed with being buried alive that he constructs an elaborate plan to prevent it from happening. Being buried alive was a common fear at that time, and this story played right into public interest. As the story begins, the narrator mentions a few disasters in history and wonders about the shadowy boundary between death and life

Fears over premature burial were ubiquitous in the 18 th and 19 th centuries. In 1792, the first safety coffin was constructed for Duke Ferdinand of Brunswick which included a window to allow light in and a tube to provide a fresh supply of air. The lid of the coffin was then locked and two keys were fitted into a special pocket sewn into his burial shroud: one for the coffin itself and one for the tomb. In these instances, there was no time to wait for the body to begin decomposing. As his body was being carried over the Tiber River to the plague pit, the boatman discovered some Signs of Life and brought the young man back to the hospital where he perfectly recovered Life.

He then discusses his own risk of premature burial, for he suffers from catalepsy. Catalepsy, he says, is an affliction that causes a human to enter a deathlike trance. A sufferer can reduce his risk of being declared dead if he informs everyone he knows about his condition. The narrator says the affliction often caused him to fall into half-swoon" in which he could not move or think but was vaguely aware of his surroundings. Type of Work and Publication Date.
