Narrative Poetry

'This course will examine seven key elements common to the structure of 19th and 20th century short stories, including character, setting, conflict, climax, resolution, point of view and theme. The selection of authors and stories is wonderful: Katherine Mansfield, “The Doll’s House”; Edgar Allan Poe, “The Tell-Tale Heart”; O. Henry, “The Gift of the Magi,” “The Last Leaf ” and “Witches Loaves”; Guy de Maupassant, “The Necklace”; Alphonse Daudet, “The Last Lesson”; Shirley Jackson, “The Lottery”; Kurt Vonnegut, “EPICAC”. Vivid, descriptive videos closely adhering to plot details will often accompany the study of many of these short stories.
