From Washington Irving (1783-1859) to F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940), the authors represented in this expansive American short story anthology invite you to see the world as they saw it. Irving's culture-defining tales of American life--"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle"--offer a turn of events that both surprises and chills the reader. In "Bartleby," Herman Melville introduces us to a lawyer whose easy way of life is upended by a mysterious new clerk who denies his authority, perplexes his visitors, and scandalizes his professional reputation. The title character of "Ath#65533;na#65533;s," by Kate Chopin, is a new wife who rebels against the submissive role expected of her by her parents and husband. In Willa Cather's "The Sculptor's Funeral," a young man accompanies the body of his friend and mentor from New York to the renowned artist's hometown where no one ever understood him. And Fitzgerald's "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz" reveals the treachery of a wealthy man protecting his fortune.   Also among the thirty-four stories included in this collection are Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Young Goodman Brown," Mark Twain's "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Caleveras County," Bret Harte's "The Outcasts of Poker Flat," Henry James's "The Real Right Thing," Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wall-Paper," O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi," Stephen Crane's "The Open Boat," and Sherwood Anderson's "The Egg."… (mer)

I'm a big fan of short stories, but they can't be so short to consist of only 2 pages. They almost seemed like odd quotes because they were so short. Great for younger children or for educational purposes, but not so much for casual reading. ( )

Classic stories. This is a fantastic collection of some of the best of the short story genre by American authors. ( )
