Its title echoing Charles May's earlier collection of essays ( Short Story Theories , 1976), this work addresses many of the same issues in light of more recent developments in literary theory. In diverse essays by contributors who are frequently writers of stories as well as theorists, the book poses four basic questions: What is a story? How does a story end? How has the story evolved? How is a story processed? Lohafer provides helpful commentaries as bridges between sections, though her aim is not prescriptive but provocative. By embracing a variety of critical approaches (e.g., narratology and discourse analysis), the book strives "not for synthesis, but rather for a sense of community that thrives on debate." A useful bibliography (including several unpublished works) is also provided.
