9780201709391: Modern Stories in English (4th Edition)

Directly aimed at both university and university-college level Introduction to Fiction and Prose Fiction courses, this anthology is an introduction to the modern short story as a literary form.

  • In this fourth edition, general editors New and Rosengarten provide readers with a wonderfully diverse selection of stories, featuring 17 new literary selections. From standard classics to examples authored by established as well as emerging contemporary writers, literary selections presented in this text clearly reflect the dynamic, ever-shifting landscape of modern short fiction in terms of the varied cultural currencies of style, structure, theme and subject matter.
  • Readers develop a greater appreciation for the entertainment value and perceptive qualities of a good story as well as its narrative roots—all of which are drawn from many traditional forms of storytelling: myths, legends, fables, folk tales, ballads, fairy tales, and oral “exempla.”
