"Short Stories Thru the Decades"
"Cathedral" (1983) by Raymond Carver
In Raymond Carver's story, "Cathedral", the story tells of how a close outside relationship can threaten a marriage by provoking insecurities, aggravating communication barriers, and creating feelings of invasion of privacy. The husband in the story is given the gift of seeing the cathedral through a blind man's eyes. Although the title suggests that the story is about a cathedral, it is really about two men who come together and share a vision and realize it is he who is blind.
