Excerpt from Author's Choice: 40 Stories
Willa Cather, Booth Tarkington, Sherwood Anderson, William Faulk ner, Ernest Hemingway, and many other Americans have written in the last thirty years about as good short stories as any in our history (except those of Henry James, who was the real master of the form, and a few by Poe in a rather special field) But if these stories are com pared with the best of La Forgue, Merimee, de Maupassant, Daudet, not to speak of many by Chekov, Turgenev, and Hans Christian Andersen, the essential difference between a finished work of art and a mere tale will be quite evident.
