Odyssey Fall 2021 presents 'Great Writers in Small Doses: The Short Story'

Anyone who believes that short stories differ from novels only in length has never read a great short story. During the past 12 years, this course has remained extremely popular, featuring many of the same great authors, but different stories. In this fall's course, we will enjoy works by Anton Chekhov, Guy de Maupassant, Kate Chopin, D.H. Lawrence, Edgar Allen Poe, James Joyce, O' Henry, Katherine Mansfield, Mark Twain, and others. Discussions will focus on character, plot, theme, setting, and atmosphere as well as historical/cultural contexts, but above all on artistry. For full course details, click here.
