Abstract
  • Only within the last few years have literary critics come to recognize in the short story a definite type, one having its own individual characteristics and limitations. It differs from the novel in a brevity not merely accidental which prohibits the too extensive development of the three elements of the novel - character, plot, and setting. As character cannot be developed satisfactorily within the compass of the short story, the emphasis falls on plot or setting, usually the latter. The short story differs from the tale which merely happens to be brief in its unity, its completeness, its striving for a single effect. Of the host of American short story writers we shall speak of Hawthorne, who analyzed that subtle thing, the New England conscience, and of his contemporary, Edgar Allen Poe. Among their successors, we have Thomas Bailey Aldrich and William Dean Howells, the "father of American realism." Among more modern writers, we have considered Francis Bret Harte, who introduced to us the people of the mining camps, and Henry Van Dyke, a modern apostle of Nature's gospel.
