ENGL246 - Introduction to the Short Story

In this course, will we study a wide range of anthologized short-stories, considering the nature and intention of the form and the elements of its artistry-character, voice, point of view, language, image, and metaphor. We will also consider a few single-author short-story collections in their entirety, discussing the various ways that multiple perspectives and tellings can serve to tell a larger story, one somehow greater than the sum of its parts.
