‘I love short stories because I believe they are the way we live. They are what our friends tell us, in their pain and joy, their passion and rage, their yearning and their cry against injustice.’ - Andre Dubus describes short stories as honest pieces incorporating a spectrum of human emotions, crystallised by their brevity. For American writers the short story has proved to be remarkably powerful. No important writer of American fiction has neglected the short story. Frank O’Connor once called the American short story a ‘national art form’. We will explore some canonical American writers who have turned their hand to the short story including: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Mark Twain, Susan Gaspell, and Edgar Allen Poe. Our focus will be on American writers from the nineteenth and early twentieth century and we will investigate how the short story has retained such a distinctive place in the American psyche.
