Summary
"The short story has become an increasingly important genre since the mid-nineteenth century. This book examines the development of the short story in Britain and other English-language literature, providing a chronological survey of the form, usefully grouping writers to show the development of the genre over time. Starting with Dickens and Kipling, the chapters cover key authors from the past two centuries and up to the present day. The focus on form, literary history and cultural context, together with the highlighting of the greatest short stories and their authors, make this an informative overview for all students of English literature."--BOOK JACKET
