Short Stories for English Courses

ByVarious

This book does not attempt to select the greatest stories of the time. Nor does it attempt to trace the evolution of the short story or to point out natural types and differences. These topics are better suited to college classes. Its object is threefold: to supply interesting reading belonging to the student's own time, to help them to see that there is no divorce between classic and modern literature, and, by offering material structurally good and typical of the qualities represented, to assist in discriminating between the artistic and the inartistic. Some stories in this book CHRISTMAS NIGHT WITH SATAN John Fox, Jr. WEE WILLIE WINKIE Rudyard Kipling THE GOLD BUG Edgar Allan Poe THE RANSOM OF RED CHIEF O. Henry THE FRESHMAN FULL-BACK Ralph D. Paine THE OUTCASTS OF POKER FLAT Francis Bret Harte THE REVOLT OF MOTHER Mary E. Wilkins Freeman QUALITY John Galsworthy THE TRIUMPH OF NIGHT Edith Wharton A MESSENGER Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews MARKHEIM Robert Louis Stevenson.
