The Short Story: Tales, Parables, and Other Enigmas
Short stories can entertain, challenge, and enlighten us. They also can represent the familiar in a new light or transport us to other realms. Often the best stories retain a core of mystery that lingers and intrigues. Read a varied selection by masters of
the genre, and engage in lively discussions with class members about “what it all means.” Reading materials are drawn from the Great Books selections and are loaned to students.
