La Vendetta by Guy de MaupassantLast night after hearing The Weird Circle an Old Time Radio show, I heard the story Vendetta. I knew it must be a French writer and saw a short story of this name by Guy de Mauspassant but this was not the story I heard but since Mauspassant is on my list of authors, I read this really short story. A woman without family to avenge her sons murderer seeks to do the job herself with the assistance of a trained dog. There is a lot to think about seeking revenge and what length would you go and where was the justice system to help this poor lady in her distress. I classify this as horror because it gave me the chills while reading. I read this from a collection of his works. This is a story not easily forgotten. The radio show was based on Honroe de Balzac story which I will read soon. I knew the writer must be French.
A Vendetta. P aolo Saverini's Widow lived alone with her son in a poor little house on the ramparts of Bonifacio. The town, built on a spur of the mountains, in places actually overhanging the sea, looks across a channel bristling with reefs, to the lower shores of Sardinia. At its foot, on the other side and almost completely surrounding it, is the channel that serves as its harbour, cut in the cliff like a gigantic corridor. Through a long circuit between steep walls, the channel brings to the very foot of the first houses the little Italian or Sardinian fishing-boats, and, every fortnight, the old steamboat that runs to and from Ajaccio. Upon the white mountain the group of houses form a whiter patch still. They look like the nests of wild birds, perched so upon the rock, dominating that terrible channel through which hardly ever a ship risks a passage.
