Title:A Study of the Short Story
Canby, Henry Seidel   
Published:   1913
Publisher:Henry Holt and Company
Tags:non-fiction, reference, short stories

In this book I have tried to present a brief, clear, and reasonably comprehensive account of the short story in English and American literature. I have tried to characterize faithfully the broader movements, selecting from the vast literature of short narrative the writing which has been vital either in itself or because of its influence.

This group of stories is thoroughly illustrative of the history, the structure, and the excellences of the short story.--Preface [Suggest a different description.]
