The Death Of Jean


Recommended Posts

When he was 74, Mark Twain lost his adult daughter to epilepsy while at home with her. His essay "The Death Of Jean" is a very poignant account of what the 24 hours after her death were like, his feelings, perceptions, thoughts on life and reflections on the many losses this great man endured. He lost his wife at age 60, and three of his four children died before him. I think as we go through our own griefs it is helpful to know that many people that we have perceived as "having it all" have gone through huge losses.
