About this title

Synopsis:

In the nineteenth century the short story played a central role in the development of American and European literature and became something of an American speciality. For Edgar Allan Poe the 'tale' had marked advantages over the novel, since the unity of effect and impression - of great importance to the author - could only be achieved at a single sitting, and the short story offered the perfect opportunity. Including the works of Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, and Edgar Allan Poe, Henry James and Edith Wharton this unique collection illustrates the force of the short story.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
