The Classic Short Story, 1870-1925 by Florence Goyet

The Classic Short Story, 1870-1925: Theory of a Genre by Florence Goyet has been published by the Open Book Publishers last month. Goyet is Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Grenoble-Alpes and her research focuses on polyphony and the political role of literature.

From the publisher’s website:

The Classic Short Story, 1870-1925: Theory of a Genre by Florence Goyet
The Classic Short Story, 1870-1925: Theory of a Genre by Florence Goyet

This expanded and updated translation of Florence Goyet’s influential La Nouvelle, 1870-1925: Description d’un genre à son apogée (Paris, 1993) is the only study to focus exclusively on this classic period across different continents. Ranging through French, English, Italian, Russian and Japanese writing – particularly the stories of Guy de Maupassant, Henry James, Giovanni Verga, Anton Chekhov and Akutagawa Ryunosuke – Goyet shows that these authors were able to create brilliant and successful short stories using the very simple ‘tools of brevity’ of that period.

Open Book Publishers is a non-profit organisation and is committed to making high-quality research freely available to readers around the world. The Classic Short Story, 1870-1925 can be read online for free.
