For many of us illness refers solely to the physical. Accidents and disease wear us down, hiccup our life from childhood to old age. But everyone empathises, understands and helps us on the road to recovery. Mental illness though can still carry a stigma. A case of 'you're not trying hard enough', 'or knuckling down and getting on with it'. But in more recent decades mental issues have come to be recognised as an illness, a disease rather than an affliction. We all remember horror stories of lobotomy's and electric shock being used to 'cure' what society viewed as anti-social behaviour but illness, mental or physical is very real. Depression, schizophrenia, breakdown, psychosis, are alarming events to have or to witness. In this volume our classic authors including Sherwood Anderson, Amy Levy, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Barry Pain and many others explore this oft neglected and most difficult of topics.1 - Short Stories About Mental Illness - An Introduction2 - Diary of a Madman by Nikolai Gogol3 - The Yellow Wall Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman4 - Sokratics in the Strand by Amy Levy5 - A Complete Recovery by Barry Pain6 - Diary of a Lunatic by Leo Tolstoy7 - Adventure by Sherwood Anderson8 - Miss Ogilivy Finds Herself by Radclyffe Hall9 - Hide And Seek or Pliatki by Fyodor Sologub10 - Brothers by Sherwood Anderson11 - Fear by Catherine Wells12 - The Diary of a God by Barry Pain13 - Shut Out by F Anstey14 - The Miracle by John Davys Beresford15 - The Lie by Leonid Andreyev16 - The Fall of the House of Usher - Part 1 by Edgar Allan Poe17 - The Fall of the House of Usher - Part 2 by Edgar Allan Poe18 - The Last of Squire Ennismore by Charlotte Riddell19 - Cohen of Trinity by Amy Levy20 - The City by Leonid Andreyev21 - In the Séance Room by Lettice Galbraith22 - A Red Flower by Vsevolod Garshin23 - Hands by Sherwood Anderson24 - Silence by Leonid Nikolaevich Andreyev25 - Paul's Case by Willa Cather
