The Golden Age of the English short story lies from its first wide acceptance in the middle of the nineteenth century until the middle of the twentieth, a period when there were a great many outlets in Britain for shorter fictions. The Penguin Book of English Short Storiescelebrates this period through some of the most widely known writers of the time. Though many of the chosen authors are more generally known for their novels, here they provide some perfect examples of much shorter work. Each of these concise, evocative, subtle and satisfying stories is a little jewel, providing a small window into another world.… (mere)

Contains 14 stories by men, just two by women. And then the patronising editorial foreword comments, "An advantage of the short story as a literary form in its own right is that it allows an essentially minor talent to fulfil itself. Katherine Mansfield is a good example ..."! ( )
  KayCliff | Oct 31, 2015 |
This volume contains sixteen examples of the English short story at its best: immediately captivating and hugely entertaining. Some stories are classics, such as James Joyce's "The Dead"; others - like 'Mr Loveday's "Little Outing" by Evelyn Waugh - are relatively unknown and a joy to discover. The collection also includes Charles Dickens' premonitory tale, "The Signalman" which was inspired by his own horrific experiences in a train crash. Katherine Mansfield's "The Voyage", meanwhile, is a sensual narrative centering on a boat journey and set in her native New Zealand. Virginia Woolf's "Kew Gardens" is different again, dramatically evoking its setting, awash with colour and light.

Some of these stories were a bit obtuse for my liking, but others were more enjoyable. The Signalman was quite creepy, as was The Withered Arm. I particularly enjoyed The Voyage and The Country of the Blind. I probably wouldn't recommend this book for people who aren't used to short stories, as some of stories are quite heavy reading. However, if you are a fan of the short story genre, this book is worth reading. ( )
