Riassunto: Introduction to Literary Context: American Short Fiction highlights significant American short fiction that is studied by high school and undergraduate college students. This volume includes discussion of 39 works of short fiction, including: Bluebeard's Egg (Margaret Atwood); Everything that Rises Must Converge (Flannery O'Connor); Girl (Jamaica Kincaid); Go Down, Moses (William Faulkner); I Stand Here Ironing (Tillie Olson); Runaway (Alice Munro); Sonny's Blues (James Baldwin); Sweat (Zora Neale Hurston); The Haunting of Hill House (Shirley Jackson); The Story of an Hour (Kate Chopin); The Swimmer (John Cheever); To Build a Fire (Jack London); and You're Ugly, Too (Lorrie Moore).

From Booklist: American Short Fiction is the latest entry in Salem Press’ Introduction to Literary Context series, which was designed to place literature in its historical, societal, scientific, and religious context while accompanying the main Critical Insights series. In this volume, 40 short stories by nineteenth- and twentieth-century American authors are analyzed by showing how they reflect their time periods. The works are arranged alphabetically by the title of the story. The essays do an excellent job bringing out the context of the stories. Each six- to eight-page essay has six sections: Content Synopsis summarizes the story; Historical Context relates it to the time period; Societal Context describes the role of society in the story; Religious Context explains how religion influences the work; Scientific and Technological Context explains how science affects the story; and Biographical Context gives insights into the author’s life. Each essay ends with a list of discussion questions, essay ideas, and a list of works cited. Of the 40 stories, 15 are by nineteenth-­century authors, with 9 of those by Edgar Allan Poe. Although Nathaniel Hawthorne, Jack London, Stephen Crane, Kate Chopin, and Ambrose Bierce are included, Washington Irving, Mark Twain, Herman Melville, and Henry James are not. The divergent group of twentieth-century authors includes John Cheever, Margaret Atwood, Flannery O’Connor, Jamaica Kincaid, J. D. Salinger, and more, but F. Scott ­Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway are missing. Fewer stories by Poe and more from other authors would make it more inclusive. This volume will be helpful to literature teachers, students, and fiction readers by giving information that supplements other literary criticism. A recommended purchase for public, school, and college libraries. --Merle Jacob

Descrizione libro Grey House Publishing Inc, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Introduction to Literary Context series provides introductory overviews of some of the world s best-known works of literature, including novels, short stories, novellas, and poems, placing them in historical, societal, scientific and religious context of their time to deepen understanding and encourage discussion. This volume introduces literary contexts as they apply to American short fiction from the late 10th century to the present, offering high school and undergraduate students a working foundation of literary context designed to prepare them for more critical literary analysis, such as in Critical Insights. This new series - Introduction to Literary Context -- provides richly detailed essays on significant American short fiction that is studied by upper high school and undergraduate college students. This volume includes discussion of 39 works of short fiction, including: An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge (Ambrose Bierce); Bluebeard s Egg (Margaret Atwood); Everything that Rises Must Converge (Flannery O Connor); Girl (Jamaica Kincaid); Go Down, Moses (William Faulkner); I Stand Here Ironing (Tillie Olson); Runaway (Alice Monro); Sonny s Blues (James Baldwin); Sweat (Zora Neale Hurston); The Haunting of Hill House (Shirley Jackson); The Lesson (Toni Cade Bambara); The Open Boat (Stephen Crane); The Story of an Hour (Kate Chopin); The Swimmer (John Cheever); To Build a Fire (Jack London); Where I m Calling From (Raymond Carver); Why I Live at the P.

Each essay examines these works of short fiction through the following categories: Content Synopsis; Societal Context; Scientific Technological Context; and Biographical Context. Designed to introduce high school and undergraduate students to these literary concepts, this volume is a valuable forerunner to the more rigorous critical analysis provided in Salem s Critical Insights series. Indeed, many of the works of short fiction, authors, and themes covered in Introduction to Literary Context have a companion Critical Insight volume for continued study. The essays in Introduction to Literary Context: American Short Fiction also include a list of Complementary Texts, Discussion Questions, and Essay Questions to help students get the most out of their study of these works.
