Course Info
This course will examine the short story as a genre through close readings of representative examples from the 19th and 20th century English and American literature. After a brief introduction to theoretical discussions on the definition of the short story, the course will enable students to engage in practical analyses of individual texts. Thus we will explore both historical and social contexts of the short stories and their formal characteristics. Thematic analyses extending from the issues of class to gender, from illness to madness will be accompanied by investigation of narrative techniques and concepts such as characterization, cycle, dénouement, epiphany, setting, single effect and unity.
