  • DESCRIPTION

    The modern short story has suffered critical neglect in Britain. This book is something of an attempt to redress the situation. It focuses on short stories written in English mainly in Britain and America and is in three sections: short stories in the 19th century; modernism and short stories; and contemporary and post-modern short stories.

  • Contents
  • FEATURES
    • Each title includes a wide-ranging yet carefully levelled introductory discussion of a literary period, genre or theme, to provide students with an excellent introduction to an area of literature.

    • Helps students to address the new assessment objective 4 ('demonstrate understanding of the significance and influence of the contexts in which literary texts are written and received') - worth up to 35% of the A level qualification under new guidelines.

    • Discussion questions and end-of-section tasks offer an invaluable resource for self study as well as helpful exam preparation.

    • A mini-anthology of texts and extracts saves teachers time searching for appropriate 'wider reading' texts.
