Finding Meaning in Suffering

Meaningful pastoral actions, according to Donald Capps, are "actions that leave their mark, have unintended consequences, disclose a world, and are always open to reinterpretation." So, in the midst of suffering, pastoral ministers have to continue engaging in meaningful positive actions without worrying about their effects or consequences. Their actions will leave marks in the afflicted, transcend their intentions and world and will always be open to new interpretations. In a sense, what becomes of a meaningful pastoral action is a mystery which goes beyond the expectations of the minister. I think I have now, by God's help, discharged my obligation in writing this [book]. Let those who think I have said too little, or those who think I have said too much, forgive me, and let those who think I have said just enough give thanks, not to me, but rather join me in giving thanks to God. Amen. (Saint Augustine)

"A distinguished American writer of fiction said to me lately: "Did you ever think of the vital American way we live? We are always going after mental gymnastics." Now the mystery story is mental gymnastics. By the time the reader has followed a chain of facts through he has exercised his mind, given himself a mental breather. But the claims of the true mystery story do not end with the general reader. It is entitled to the consideration of the discriminating because it indubitably takes its own place as a gauge of mastery in the field of the short story. The demand was never quite so keen as it is now. The currents of literature as of all things change swiftly these times. This world of ours has become very sophisticated. It has suffered itself to be exploited till there is no external wonder left. Retroactively the demand for mystery, which is the very soul of interest, must find new expression. Thus we turn inward for fresh thrills to the human comedy, and outward to the realm of the supernatural." [...]Part three of the Masterpieces collection. Contains narratives from Wilkie Collins, Edgar Allan Poe and many others.

"Oh, my God! to think of that kind-hearted, lovely young woman, who brings happiness with her wherever she goes, bringing terror to me! Terror when her pitying eyes look at me, terror when her kind voice speaks to me, terror when her tender hand touches mind!"Porthgenna Tower on the remote western Cornish coast. Moments before her death, Mrs Treverton dictates a secret to her maid, never to be passed to her husband as she had instructed. Fifteen years later, when Mrs Treverton's daughter, Rosamond, returns to Porthgenna with her blind husband, Leonard, she is intrigued by the strange and seemingly disturbed Mrs Jazeph's warning not to enter the Myrtle Room in the ruined north wing. Strong-minded and ingenious, Rosamond's determined detective workuncovers shocking and unsettling truths beyond all expectation.A mystery of unrelenting suspense and psychologically penetrating characters, The Dead Secret explores the relationship between a fallen woman, her illegitimate daughter, and buried secrets in a superb blend of romance and Gothic drama. Wilkie Collins's fifth novel, The Dead Secret anticipates the themes of his next novel, The Woman in White in its treatment of mental illness, disguise and deception, and the dispossession of lost identity. Yet a series of comicfigures offsets the tension, from the dyspeptic Mr Phippen to the perpetually smiling governess, Miss Sturch. Displaying the talent and energy which made Collins the most popular novelist of the 1860s, The Dead Secret represents a crucial phase in Collins's rise as a mystery writer, and was his first full-length novel writtenspecifically for serialization.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
