Abstract:

The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories of Edith Nesbit. Edith Nesbit is more famously known as a writer of children's stories (stories some of which are available in our other volumes). But in this volume we explore her short stories. And they bring out a very different side of her imagination. For a start they are dark in nature, short in length. They brim with atmosphere around characters that could be our neighbours. And they almost always end with a fright.
