Now it is sitting on my desk, on certain days I open it and read a couple of pages -- that's much better. The ideal reading pace for this book would probably be about three sentences per day -- only in this manner can this amazing book of consolation amazing in its philosophical purity achieve its full impact. What I mean is the subtle sense of vertigo in reading it: the reader is drawn into reflections about the inevitable, as if it had already long happened.
And, indeed, it has -- and not only for the one whose voice we hear in this book, but for each of us, who listen closely Kathrin Stengel has written the most excellent book on grief I have read. And I have read almost all the grief books I could find.nn.threadsol.com/156643-what-is-the.php

Until now, I have not dared to share a book on loving, death and grieving with any friend or family member who had suffered the profound loss of a loved one.
Now comes November Rose, written with elegance, astute honesty and love. Instead of platitudes like "time heals all wounds" Dr. Stengel shares her very personal and philosophical observations on death of the beloved, the "survivor's" place in the social network and loving oneself back into life. Stengel notes that time cannot heal on its own and "only if time joins forces with courage can it heal--the courage to let go of the last thing we have left of the other, his death, and instead to choose love, and, hence life.
Stengel sharply deals with the phenomenon of Death turning the survivor's life into public property and the survivor's loss of identity following the beloved's death.

November Rose: A Speech on Death by Kathrin Stengel - gyqytatirojy.tk
In this penetrating, thought-provoking, and deeply personal philosophical meditation on the death of the beloved other and the turmoil into which it throws those who were close to him, philosopher Kathrin Stengel opens hitherto unseen vistas onto one of the most painful human experiences.
The author's ruthless clarity of observation, coupled with razor-sharp philosophical intuition and unflinching honesty of judgment, allows her to pinpoint the personal and social complexities of life after death in a way that cannot but make us doubt some of our common practices in dealing with death and survival. It's philosophy as meditation. She has succeeded in elevating the personal and intimate to the level of the universal - in writing a book that is crystal-clear and understandable, while being emotionally persuasive and inviting its reader fully to open herself to it.
Her ruthless analysis and sober assessment of our dealing with survival and death notwithstanding, Kathrin Stengel has also written a story that is simply the story of a great love. It is very helpful for those who lost a partner and are in a new relationship.
