Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 3,0, Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (Philosophische Fakultät), Veranstaltung: Short Story II: Short Fiction since 1945, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: When the first short story was written in the early nineteenth century, nobody thought it could be a whole new literary genre.
