The Broadview Anthology of Short Fiction is a compact anthology that presents a wide range of exemplary works in a collection of elegant proportions. The anthology's core logic is the inclusion of stories most frequently and successfully taught to undergraduates in university courses, in North America and beyond. This selection of twenty-six stories (from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries) illustrates diverse narrative styles and techniques as well as a broad spectrum of human experiences. The collection comprises useful classroom examples, recognized classics of the genre, and some very interesting, less often anthologized works. Stories are organized chronologically, are lightly annotated for the undergraduate reader, and are prefaced by engaging short introductions. Also included is a glossary of basic critical terms, with examples in many cases from the stories themselves.
