This course examines the development of the American short story over the course of the twentieth century, touching on the works of both major and under-read writers. In addition to examining these authors’ fictional techniques, we will also be investigating the ways in which authors stole from and argued with one another as well as how the popular understanding of the short story changed over the course of the century. Reading will be substantial. Requirements include two essays (one short, one long) as well as reading responses and one small presentation.
