Short Fiction in Short
MLA
Boston, MA
3 - 6 January 2013

Because of meager critical attention given to the short story before 1976, Charles E. May organized a volume entitled Short Story Theories as a plea for more meaningful and substantive work on the form. As May noted with the publication of New Short Story Theories in 1994, many literary theorists and critics heeded the call, and, in fact, much work has been done on short fiction in the last twenty-five years. Nonetheless, critics still reflexively associate the novel with the United States because of form’s theorization and history.
