In The Oxford Book of American Short Stories, Joyce Carol Oates offers a sweeping survey of American short fiction, in a collection of fifty-nine tales that combines classic works with many `unexpected gems', and that invites readers to explore a wealth of important pieces by women and minority writers. Some selections simply can't be improved upon, Oates admits, and she happily includes such time-honoured works as Irving's `Rip Van Winkle', Poe's `The Tell-Tale Heart' and§Hemingway's `A Clean, Well-Lighted Place'. Alongside these classics, Oates introduces such little-known stories as Mark Twain's `Cannibalism in the Cars' a story that reveals a darker side to his humour. From Melville come the juxtaposed tales, `The Paradise of Bachelors' and the `Tartarus of Maids' of§which Oates says, `Only Melville could have fashioned out of `real' events ... such harrowing and dreamlike allegorical fiction.' From Flannery O'Connor we find `A Late Encounter with the Enemy', and from John Cheever, `The Death of Justina', one of Cheever's own favourites.§The reader will also delight in the range of authors found here, from Charles W. Chesnutt, to William Carlos Williams. Contemporary artists abound, including Bharati Mukherjee and Amy Tan, Alice Adams and David Leavitt, Bobbie Ann Mason and Tim O'Brien, Louise Erdich and John Edgar Wideman. Oates provides fascinating introductions to each writer, blending biographical information with her own trenchant observation about their work, plus a long introductory essay, in which she offers the fruits§of years of reflection on a genre in which she herself is a master.

Selected Short Stories of Faulkner - 2826897244

Selected Short Stories of Faulkner Random House Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Faulkner was a master of the short story. Most of the pieces in this collection are drawn from the greatest period in his writing life, the fifteen or so years beginning in 1929, when he published "The Sound and the Fury." They explore many of the themes found in the novels and feature characters of small-town Mississippi life that are uniquely Faulkner's. In "A Rose for Emily," the first of his stories to appear in a national magazine, a straightforward, neighborly narrator relates a tale of love, betrayal, and murder. The vicious family of the Snopes trilogy turns up in "Barn Burning," about a son's response to the activities of his arsonist father. And Jason and Caddy Compson, two other inhabitants of Faulkner's mythical Yoknapatawpha County, are witnesses to the terror of the pregnant black laundress in "That Evening Sun." These and the other stories gathered here attest to the fact that Faulkner is, as Ralph Emerson so aptly notes, "the greatest artist the South has produced."

Fairy stories have captivated the hearts and minds of children over many centuries. With their stories of witches and fairies, enchanting castles, and beautiful princesses, they contain all the right ingredients for exciting a young mind. But as is well known, the truths that can be found within these timeless compositions are rich in meaning and metaphor. In this innovative book, seven traditional tales are beautifully retold. Appealing to children, these are also intended to inspire new meaning for adults. Combined with each classical retelling is a short story that aims to maintain the spirit and messages contained in the children's versions. These parallel stories are specifically written for adults, set in a wide range of environments, and featuring characters who encounter a whole host of very real human challenges and dilemmas. Loan sharks and wife-beaters, compulsive gamblers and manslaughterers all feature here. But so too do stories of transformation and redemption, and journeys of self-discovery and unlikely friendship. Each pair of stories is accompanied by a commentary on how they might be interpreted. The result is a collection of wonderful tales that may continue to enthral children, whilst offering fresh levels of meaning that might be appreciated by an older audience.

The Metamorphosis and Other Stories Barnes&Noble

Podręczniki w obcych językach

Virtually unknown during his lifetime, Franz Kafka is now one of the world’s most widely read and discussed authors. His nightmarish novels and short stories have come to symbolize modern man’s anxiety and alienation in a bizarre, hostile, and dehumanized world. This vision is most fully realized in Kafka’s masterpiece, “The Metamorphosis,” a story that is both harrowing and amusing, and a landmark of modern literature. Bringing together some of Kafka’s finest work, this collection demonstrates the richness and variety of the author’s artistry. “The Judgment,” which Kafka considered to be his decisive breakthrough, and “The Stoker,” which became the first chapter of his novel Amerika, are here included. These two, along with “The Metamorphosis,” form a suite of stories Kafka referred to as “The Sons,” and they collectively present a devastating portrait of the modern family.

Anatomy of a Short Story Continuum Publishing Corporation

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Since its first publication in 1948, one of Vladimir Nabokov's shortest short stories, "Signs and Symbols," has generated perhaps more interpretations and critical appraisal than any other that he wrote. It has been called "one of the greatest short stories ever written" and "a triumph of economy and force, minute realism and shimmering mystery" (Brian Boyd, Vladimir Nabokov: The American Years). Part and parcel of a classical short fiction genre, Nabokov's "Signs and Symbols"--one of his last experiments in short prose--strikes with lexical density and contains a surprising structural element: what the writer had described in his letter to Katharine White, the editor of the New Yorker, as having an "inside," "inner scheme," and "a system of mute responses". The goal of the present collection of essays is to approach the narrative riddles of "Signs and Symbols"-- reproduced here in full -- an open-ended story which invites attempts to break its mysterious code. In doing so, the contributors illuminate the ways in which we interpret fiction, and the short story in particular.
