Loss in any form seems to burden us with more weight than anything that can possibly be gained or learnt from. The loss of a person, a loved one, is often overwhelming. Lives so interwoven that the severing or loss of one life leaves the other weakened, unable to function for some time. Recovery comes in a myriad of forms but is usually debilitating, slow and, in the end, we are not as whole as we once were. It is a subject that authors return to again and again. It is inevitable that at some point in their lives grief has struck them, hollowed them out, but, for some, this dreadful experience is used to nourish words, to form a narrative, a beginning, middle and end to relay and share with others the 'what' and the 'why' and perhaps some words of comfort too.Our classic authors guiding us through this volume include Katherine Mansfield, D H Lawrence, Luigi Pirandello, Mary Butts and a host of others.1 - Short Stories About Grief - An Introduction2 - The Mourner by Mary Shelley3 - They by Rudyard Kipling4 - Life of Ma Parker by Katherine Mansfield5 - Mother Sauvage (La Mere Sauvage) by Guy de Maupassant6 - The Altar of the Dead - Part 1 by Henry James7 - The Altar of the Dead - Part 2 by Henry James8 - Odour of Chrysanthemums by D H Lawrence9 - Hide And Seek or Pliatki by Fyodor Sologub10 - Tennessee's Partner by Bret Harte11 - Misery by Anton Chekhov12 - War by Luigi Pirandello13 - The Canary by Katherine Mansfield14 - Silence by Leonid Nikolaevich Andreyev15 - The Miracle by John Davys Beresford16 - A Complete Recovery by Barry Pain17 - The General's Will by General Jelihovsky18 - The Vendetta by Guy de Maupassant19 - Them Others by Stacy Aumonier20 - A Responsibility by Henry Harland21 - The Fly by Katherine Mansfield22 - A Dead Womans Secret by Guy de Maupassant23 - Since I Died by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps24 - The Border Line by D H Lawrence25 - After the Funeral by Mary Butts26 - John Mortonson's Funeral by Ambrose Bierce27 - The Grave by Guy de Maupassant
