Cambridge Companions to Literature : The Cambridge Companion to the English Short Story, Hardback Book

Cambridge Companions to Literature : The Cambridge Companion to the English Short Story Hardback

Edited by Ann-Marie (Northumbria University, Newcastle) Einhaus

Description

This Companion provides an accessible overview of short fiction by writers from England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and other international sites.

A collection of international experts examine the development of the short story in a variety of contexts from the early nineteenth century to the present.

They consider how dramatic changes in the publishing landscape during this period - such as the rise of the fiction magazine and the emergence of new opportunities in online and electronic publishing - influenced the form, covering subgenres from detective fiction to flash fiction.

Drawing on a wealth of critical scholarship to place the short story in the English literary tradition, this volume will be an invaluable guide for students of the short story in English.
