A Pocketful of Plays: Vintage Short Stories, Volume II contains 23 short stories that research reveals to be currently among the most commonly studied in class around the country. The works include source materials to encourage further discussion and analysis, Among these enhancement are author's comments, biographical and critical commentaries, and sections of a play and a film script for comparison of media. The reception of this series has supported the original assumption that students and teachers would welcome an innovative alternative to huge anthologies, which are rarely used entirely, tend to be too bulky to carry and to handle in class. As with the first Vintage anthology in the Pocketful series, this anthology is aimed at satisfying the need for a concise, quality collection that students will find inexpensive sand that instructors will enjoy teaching.
