English Literature Studies: Short Stories

A guide to English literature and literary criticism.

Begin Here . . .


The sources here might provide the most specific type of information you need.  However, you may also benefit from visiting a few other tabs inside this guide.

For example, if you are researching a short story, you might stop in this Short Story tab to find information in in the Short Story Index. Next, you might head to the Literary Criticism tab to find a book or articles discussing the story. Plot Summaries will guide you to a source containing, well, a plot summary. At any rate, depending on your project or need, all of these tabs might be useful. So, glad you stopped by, but don't make this your only stop.

Short Story Resources

Indexes point you toward a collection in which a short story has been published; critical surveys and references guides point you toward further information on a short story.
