We’ll catch up on our reading, covering two great short stories — one a classic and one its contemporary mate — each week. We’ll discuss the stories in depth, looking for their parallels and considering the role of literary influence in contemporary short fiction. We’ll read both stories each week as examples of excellence in literature, but also as models of craft, making this a great course for readers and writers alike.
