Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics. The second of four volumes of short stories which reflect Somerset Maugham's wry perception of human foibles and gift for evoking drama from a sense of time and place. In this autobiography, Quentin Crisp describes his unhappy childhood and the stresses of adolescence that led him to London. There in bedsits and cafes he found a world of brutality and comedy, of shortlived jobs and precarious relationships. Set in Malaya, America and England, they include "Flotsam and Jetsam," "The Man With the Sca,r" and "The Vessel of Wrath.

Selected Short Stories - D. H. Lawrence. The Prussian Officer

Selected Short Stories - D. The Prussian Officer. As Mailer writes in his classic defense of Lawrence and Henry Miller, The Prisoner of Sex, Lawrence argued that ?sex was the only nostrum which could heal, all other medicines were part of the lung-scarring smoke of factories and healed nothing ?

Thousands of great short stories can be found in American Literature's Short Story Library, including many of the greatest short stories ever written. Our collection continues to expand and we also feature a Short Story of the Day. This tender story - one of the most famous titles in the short story genre - is a must-read. This sentimental tale has a moral lesson and is widely enjoyed during Christmastime and the holiday season.

This selection of short stories not only offers a representative and wide-ranging selection of Lawrence's work, but also traces a pattern of development in the author's career.
  • An excellent item.

  • Honestly, I've never been an avid reader of DH Lawrence. This is not to say, I dislike him as a writer. Not true. The literature that I have read by him, most I've found interesting and good. It had been a while since I read any DH, until I picked up SELECTED SHORT STORIES. I picked it up primarily for the story "The Prussian Officer." I wasn't disappointed with the short story at all. It's quite a homoerotic story about a Captain and his subordinate, telling of DH and his other work in many ways. The story is compelling, yet tragic, which I liked. The other stories that followed didn't quite compare. I found the other's dry and verbose (especially "Daughters of the Vicar"). I'd recommend this collection just for the "The Prussian Officer."

  • At its best, Victorian literature is about the cost of breaking the rules, and perhaps more important, the cost of not breaking the rules. In this handsome volume, which includes airy pages, larger-than-average type, and an abundance of engravings to illustrate the text, Hardy examines this central theme through the course of nine short stories drawn from "A Group of Noble Dames" (1891) and "Life's Little Ironies" (1894). All the tales found herein are true page-turners; some are quite short, many are typically tragic, and a few even have a happy ending!

  • D.H. Lawrence was a superb short story writer, and The Rocking Horse Winner is perhaps one of the greatest short stories ever written. The only other short story that is its equal is The Bet by Anton Chekhov. I would say more but that would be spoiling it for you. Let it suffice to say that Lawrence is now a much overlooked writer, however, his message of how modern industry is destroying all that is vital and natural in mankind is as poignant today as when he first wrote about it almost 100 years ago! So what's new?

  • I RECENTLY TRIED TO 'GET THROUGH' VOLUME 1 OF LAWRENCES SHORT STORIES. I LOVE HIS WRITING. IT'S BEAUTIFUL AND FILLED WITH WILD SENSUAL IMAGES. HOWEVER, WHEN I FINISH EACH STORY, I WONDER: SO WHAT??? WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT??? EACH STORY SEEMS TO BE SIMPLY A SLICE OF LIFE, MANY DEALING WITH MAN/WOMAN RELATIONSHIPS. BUT AT THE END OF EACH, I DID NOT FEEL THAT I HAD LEARNED OR GAINED ANYTHING FROM THE READING. ALSO, MOST DID NOT HOLD MY ATTENTION - EXCEPT FOR THE BEAUTIFUL USE OF LANGUAGE AND SENSE IMAGERY.
