An Anthology of Short Fiction
Rosemary Sullivan, Mark Levene
Oxford University Press, 2003 - Short stories - 950 pages
Short Fiction: An Anthology is a collection of 80 short stories and 2 novellas. It offers a wide variety of selections from the mid-19th century to the present, and includes a number of works by young and rarely anthologised authors. The stories are arranged chronologically according to the date of birth of the author. The introductory essay closely critiques two short stories, Chekhov's 'The Lady with the Pet Dog' from the 19th century and Carver's post World War Two story about Chekhov, 'Errand'. The introduction enables the editors to demonstrate methods of critical approaches to short fiction and literature in general, thereby helping students to develop their own critical abilities.
