VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION TO THE SHORT STORY

23 April 2022


What defines a modern short story is much more than a question of length.

However it has become far more than that, and Andrew Kahn, Professor of Russian Literature at the University of Oxford, considers afresh the form's ongoing innovations in plot construction, capacity for psychological insight, and ability to offer intensely concentrated perceptions.
