Great Short Stories of the World

Educator Morris Schreiber directs the Institute Players in a five-part presentation on the universal relevance of the short story. Using primarily the works of Western 19th-and 20th-century writers, the presentation focuses on how short stories open new vistas to readers, and how the stories can be used as tools for improving international understanding and communication. Among the authors whose stories are cited are such renowned writers as Anton Chekhov, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Guy de Maupassant, and John Steinbeck; Schreiber also includes writers lesser known in the USA such as Selma Lagerlöf, Lilika Nakos, Prosper Mérimée, and Arthur Schnitzler. The complete transcript is included in the liner notes.
