Présentation de l'éditeur

The Complete Short Stories of Thomas Wolfe stands as the most comprehensive edition of Thomas Wolfe’s short fiction to date. Collected by Francis E. Skipp, these fifty-eight stories span the breadth of Thomas Wolfe’s career, from the uninhibited young writer meticulously describing the enchanting birth of springtime in “The Train and the City” to his mature, sober account of a terrible lynching in “The Child by Tiger.” Thirty-five of these stories have never before been collected, and “The Spanish Letter” is published here for the first time. Vital, compassionate, remarkably attuned to character, scene, and social context, The Complete Short Stories of Thomas Wolfe represents the last work we have from the author of Look Homeward, Angel, who was considered the most promising writer of his generation (The New York Times).

The Short Stories of a Novelist 15 juin 2009
Par Kevin M. Derby - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A man of enormous size and ambitions, Thomas Wolfe was a novelist and not a short story writer. Wolfe's editors and agent cut out parts of his epic sized manuscript and had them published as stories in various outlets. Readers of Wolfe's novels will recognize a few of the stories since they often appeared as chapters in his books. While admittedly not a short story writer, Wolfe's talents make this collection worth having. Wolfe fans can take pleasure that some of his abandoned novels appear as stories here (for example his "Hound of Darkness" idea shows up as "Prelude to America" in this collection). While some of the reviewers may balk at Wolfe's use of stereotyping, some of the works here, including a number of pieces bashing Nazi Germany, may help salvage Wolfe's reputation. The most powerful and finest crafted story in the collection offers a cold, condemning look at a lynching. With excellent introductions by James Dickey and Francis Skipp, this collection serves as an excellent introduction to a great and unfairly neglected writer.

Trancendent Reading Experience 5 avril 2002

Format: Broché
I've treasured this work of Mr. Wolfe's since purchasing it in the first edition in 1988. I can think of few authors who can transport their readership into relms of utter beauty and transcendence
. Experiencing them is a gift to behold.
A MUST start for those who have not read anything by Wolfe.
A treasure for all times.
