Perspectives on the Short Storyopens an exciting gateway into the literary tradition. With an eye on the ever-changing needs of the twenty-first century classroom, Perspectivesoffers numerous innovative themes and connections. It ranges globally, touching down in literary geographies from Cervantes' Spain to Hurston's Eatonville to Ngugi's Nigeria. No matter what the focus of the course, instructors will find plenty of stories to deepen students' understanding and appreciation of literature. Beginning with the emergence of the short story form in the nineteenth century, the editors draw connections among the short story and folklore, myth, and the origins of the novel. The volume also edges over the borders of literary conventions, looking at familiar genres as well as experiments in graphic stories and the avant-garde. Students will delight in meeting up with Gogol's nose, Atwood's "Ugly Stepsister," Poe's eerie twins, and Alexie's "Lone Ranger."
