This new anthology for university students in both general courses and courses devoted to the short story presents the short-story form through classic texts in the English language. From early writers such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Henry James, and Sara Jeannette Duncan, through twentieth-century figures such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Virginia Woolf, and Flannery O''Connor, to contemporary voices like Mavis Gallant and Alice Munro, The Short Story in English shows the development of a major literary form. Half of its stories are by men, half by women, and one-third of the thirty writers included are Canadian. By representing writers with two stories, the anthology permits in-depth comparisons and stylistic analysis. The Short Story in English will become an indispensable textbook.
