SHORT STORIES FROM THE 19TH CENTURY

SELECTED DAVID STUART DAVIES    Book Number: 88930    Product format: Paperback

A wonderful collection of classic stories specially selected and introduced by David Stuart Davies. These are tales from the golden age of the great storytellers presenting evocative snapshots from that bygone era while at the same time providing engaging entertainment and stimulation for the modern reader. All emotions are catered for in the offerings by Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, H. G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Mrs Gaskell, Anthony Trollope, Thomas Hardy, Wilkie Collins, Anton Chekhov, Charlotte Perkins Gillman and Charles Lamb. Through their words the rich pageant of yesterday springs to vibrant life. From France there of Guy de Maupassant, one of the greatest short-story writers of all and from America, O Henry. Then there is a heady mix of excellent tales by excellent tellers of tales, because this crop has been taken from the time of the great golden harvest in short story writing. Each story is prefaced with concise biographical details and a brief discussion of the themes in the story. 15 stories including The Withered Arm, The Terribly Strange Bed, The Sphinx Without A Secret and Juke Judkins' Courtship. 226pp in new Wordsworth paperback.
