The Short Story presents the short story as a major literary genre and involves analytical readings and interpretations of early, modern, and contemporary fiction. It introduces the elements of short story (e.g., theme, plot, character, symbol, style) and offers a critical vocabulary to discuss the stories. These stories are read closely and critically from a literary perspective, as well as for the range of social, historical, political, and cultural perspectives they represent.
