Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2008 - 193 Seiten
Beginning with an overview of the development of short fiction through the late 18th-century and analysis of the publishing conditions for the genre, Tim Killick shows how Washington Irving's collections set the stage for British writers. The book then considers the stories of writers as diverse as Mary Russell Mitford and James Hogg.
