Abstract

"Man, who Parts the Windblown Grasses," and Other Stories is a collection of short fiction based on common themes of violence, loss and grief, and humanity's struggle to reconcile the primal demands of the id with the desires and restrictions of the superego. Written from many different perspectives, representing all manner of walks of life, the collection seeks to question the ways in which violence is presented, defended, and understood, and what that means for humanity as a species.
