Guy de Maupassant
Someone commented on Readers by Author asking for me to stereotype Guy de Maupassant. I haven’t thought of one yet, but when I saw that pretty name I instantly thought of his short story The Necklace. The Necklace was one of the first short stories that I truly enjoyed. I think the next one would be The Birthmark by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Both of these stories introduced to me short stories as a genre, not as a quicker way to tell a story. They are beautiful and whole regardless of length.
Any other short stories you would stick in that category? (I’m thinking about short stories that you read in high school English classes…).
