Against the background of the early American republic, characterized by hardships of settlement life, the effects of the Revolutionary War, and the repressiveness of Puritanism, there arose a vital new literary form-an extraordinary and uniquely American contribution to the world of letters-the short story.

36 entries include: Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Ambrose Bierce, Lydia Maria Chile, Samuel L. Clemens, Bret Harte, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Washington Irving, Henry James, Caroline Kirkland, Augustus Baldwin Longstreet, Herman Melville, Edgar Allan Poe, Harriet Beecher Stowe.
