9780821410875: New Short Story Theories

The first edition of May's Short Story Theories (1976) opened with an essay entitled "The Short Story: An Underrated Art." Almost two decades later, the short story suffers no such slight. Publishers and critics have become increasingly interested in the form, which has enjoyed a renaissance led by such writers as Raymond Carver, Tobias Wolff, Ann Beattie, Bobbie Ann Mason, and Mary Robison. An important part of this revival of interest, Short Story Theories has continued to attract a strong and loyal audience among students and teachers. The New Short Story Theories includes a few basic pieces from the earlier volume-Poe's Hawthorne review, Brander Matthew's extension and formalization of Poe's theories, and essays by Randall Jarrell, Elizabeth Bowen, and Nadine Gordimer-but most of the essays are new to the collection. Addressing problems of definition, historical considerations, issues of technique, and cognitive approaches, essays include: "The Tale as Genre in Short Story Fiction," by W. S. Penn "O. Henry and the Theory of the Short Story," by Suzanne C. Ferguson "On Writing," by Raymond Carver "From Tale to Short Story," by Robert F. Marler "A Cognitive Approach to Storyness," by Susan Lohafer May's new collection will continue to highlight the short story, to provoke debate, and to enrich our experience of a demanding and rewarding literary form.

Review:


"This 'second edition' of May's 1976 Short Story Theories is actually eighty percent new... May argues that the sort story has experienced a 'renaissance' in the last decade, as a new generation of writers has found it an appropriate form for their talents and as more critics have devoted themselves to its serious study."  --American Literature

"One of the most intriguing uses for this book in my view, is the possibility of organizing a course around it, testing theories against specific stories here analyzed with tantalizing insight
