Each volume of Short Stories for Students contains easily accessible and content-rich discussions of the literary and historical background of 13-15 works from various cultures and time periods. Each story covered in this new resource was specially chosen by an advisory panel of teachers and librarians -- experts who have helped us define the information needs of students and ensure the age-appropriateness of this reference's content.
Here are some of the stories you will find in this volume: "The Birthmark" by Nathaniel Hawthorne, "Cat in the Rain" by Ernest Hemingway, "The Homecoming Stranger" by Bei Dao, "Mista Courifer" by Adelaide Casely-Hayford, "A Pair of Silk Stockings" by Kate Chopin, and "A Sunrise on the Veld" by Doris Lessing.
