We will explore several short stories from American and British Literature in order to understand the tools the authors used to create powerful and compact vehicles for universal themes. We will consider why the authors chose this format, the benefits and drawbacks of this structure, and we will look at several famous examples from American and British literature.

Cailey Underhill is a high school English teacher. She delights in reading, writing, and analyzing texts of various types. She has a background in English, history, and psychology, and a Master of Science in English Education from Syracuse University. She previously taught a course for SOAR on Jane Austen. Cailey is looking forward to presenting additional information on American and British short stories.
