The American short story, 1945-1980 : a critical history

Boston : Twayne, 1983.

150 p. ; 23 cm.

These critical essays offer a satisfying assessment of the trends and traditions of the American short story since World War II. A dynamic mode of literary expression since its beginnings, the American short story has moved from a realistic analysis of American manners and mores to its current focus on experimental techniques. No other genre so closely reflects our national temperament. Literary masters like Cheever, Updike, Malamud, Barthelme, O'Connor and Oates are discussed, in addition to young or previously uncelebrated writers of comparable excellence. Includes selected bibliographies. For the student and scholar alike.
