Assuming you know the name of the plant I’m asking about, please tell me if it’s possible to bring it back from almost dead. The two are in pots with roots a couple of inches below the pot. I was supposed to transplant them last year but watered and left them in a big pot with soil so they rooted there. Anyhow they look dead as doornails (and they were from cuttings from my friend’s garden!).

I believe you are referring to Bishop's Cap or Mitella diphylla. There's no way to tell from here whether your plant has crossed over, but I think the best way to know is to cut it back, feed and water it, and see if it takes off. If there is any part that's still green it may have a chance. Good luck with this. Here's an article about Bishop's Cap:
