    PDF ✓ BOOK The Oxford Book of Short Stories Oxford Books of Prose Ï SRLLTD The Oxford Book of Short Stories Oxford Books of ProseThis collection from 1981 is not perfect at all but I'm going to contrary wise give it 5 stars because there are achingly wonderful stories here by authors who are new discoveries for me and who I will explore I feel my life has been hugely enriched by reading itAn interesting recurring theme is children stories seen from their point of view It got me to thinking are there disproportionate numbers of short stories about children? The form seems to lend itself excellently to capturing their sometimes blackwhite way of seeing morality which can be shorn of excessive contingencies and caveats Also the way children experience a single event and as a result radically change their approach to life becoming almost a different person Eddie Limonov's piece in Granta 14 Autobiography is the best example of this but there are elements of it in the HE Bates Morley Callaghan Saki and de la Mare stories hereSome are incompreh

    PDF ✓ BOOK The Oxford Book of Short Stories Oxford Books of Prose Ï SRLLTD The Oxford Book of Short Stories Oxford Books of ProseRead in 2008 with my DadOur November challenge book Admittedly many of these stories are drawn from olderearlier writers but a big chunk of them felt dated to me so in their style than anything else This is just a random not researched or well thought out theory but modern short stories seem to have stronger plots better drawn and perhaps intenser situations things happen and people have stronger reactions to the happenings while many of the stories from earlier times seem passive one character “telling the story” to another ie stories told at a remove via third person epistolary storytelling or other device Stories where almost nothing happens or the s
