Teaching the Short Story

by Ailsa Cox (Editor) - £39.99  Palgrave Macmillan (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780230573703 | ISBN 10: 0230573703

The short story is moving from relative neglect to a more central position in the literary curriculum. As a teaching tool, its accessibility offers students a route into many complex areas, including critical theory, gender studies, postcolonialism, literary adaptation and genre. Teaching the Short Story offers a practical guide to the short story in the classroom, covering all these fields - and more. With a team of international contributors including Charles E. May, whose Short Story Theories marked the beginning of the current revival in short story criticism, it demonstrates, above all, the potential of the short story as a genre in its own right.
 
Teaching the Short Story explores current debates and challenges facing short story scholars and writers in Britain and the US. It is an essential introduction both to those who are new to this diverse and exciting field; and also suggests future directions for those undertaking postgraduate research in the short story.
