Objectifs du cours

The short story has always been a popular literary genre in the United States. Very often, stories can be read in newspapers like The Saturday Evening Post, or magazines, like The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Ladies Home Journal, Redbook…, before they are collected in book form or integrated into novels. Focusing on the short story as a genre and on its form, this class is intended to introduce students to a variety of writers whose stories were published between 1962 and 2011. It will enable students to ponder on major themes in American fiction (the ordinary, human relationships, gender relations, communication...) and on specific modes (the gothic, the fantastic...).


The short stories will be included in a reader that will be handed out during the first class.
