The World in the Short Story - Ten Stories for Ten Weeks

Tuesday 1.30 - 3.30

For some, the short story is the key literary form for our time. Something about its glancing, snapshot nature seems suited to the character of modern societies, perhaps because the short story seems a markedly democratic medium, narrowing our focus down upon the myriad lives and experiences of the individual. For this course we shall be exploring ten examples of the form, drawn from a range of countries and taking in some of the major writers who have contributed to its development, including, amongst others, James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Angela Carter and J L Borges.
