Just as the body goes into shock after a physical trauma, so does the human psyche go into shock after the impact of a major loss.

Anne Macvicar Grant is a Scottish poet and author best known for her collection of mostly biographical poems Memoirs of an American Lady as well as her earlier work Letters from the Mountains. She was married to Grant for 22 years and mothered 12 children, 8 of whom survived to adulthood. Her husband died in 1800. Without an income or property, it was in her desperation as a widowed mother that she began publishing her writings. Letters from the Mountains was well received and enabled her to focus more fully on her own writing. The book also came to inspire other writers and artists interested in the Scottish Highlands, and it often cited as the inspiration for the Scottish folk song Blue Bells of Scotland. Her next major work was her largest success though. Memoirs of an American Lady told her tales of growing up in pre-revolution America and her life with the Schuyler family in Albany who helped raise and educate her. One of her final large pieces of work was Eighteen Hundred and Thirteen, a lengthy poem about the prospects of a prosperous century for Great Britain.
