The Jilting of Granny Weatherall

The Jilting of Granny Weatherall

The Jilting of Granny Weatherall is a short story written by American writer Katherine Anne Porter. It was published in 1930 as part of Porter’s short story collection, Flowering Judas, and Other Stories. As the story opens, octogenarian Granny Weatherall is in bed, attended to by Dr. Harry and her grown daughter, Cornelia. Although Granny finds their concern officious, it becomes apparent that Granny is suffering from a serious illness, and that she is not fully aware of the gravity of her condition.
