The short story has existed as a literary genre for just more than a hundred years. When written by some of the masters of this genre, these works of short fiction can be powerful explorations of attitudes toward life and perceptions of personal reality.
Unlike most Lifelong Learning Society (LLS) offerings, this course is not a lecture. Instead, it is a limited-enrollment course (open only to LLS members) and will be an interactive discussion of a selection of diverse--albeit important--works of short fiction.
Prior to each class, students will receive a reading assignment of several works of short fiction. Each class will then proceed as an in-depth discussion of the works assigned for that session.
