Great English Short Stories
About this course:
In this course, we read great English short stories that range from social realism to surreal fantasy, from rural poverty to war-blitzed London, and from tales of the supernatural to precise delineations of the mundane. Stories that illuminate the varied nature of English self-awareness; and encompass comedy and tragedy, farce and delicacy, elegance and the grotesque. Authors include: Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling, H.G. Wells, D.H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, Graham Greene, Alan Sillitoe, and Ian McEwan. Suggested book: Oxford Book of English Short Stories, ed. A.S. Byatt (Oxford University Press; 2nd edition)
