Meet our team of inspirational teachers
Frank O'Connor believes that short stories are about isolated individuals who undergo a 'frontier experience'. The stories I will examine are Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl, The Necklace by Guy de Maupassant and The Withered Arm by Thomas Hardy.
trough a dramatic incident or by looking at fleeting moments of their lives from which we might gain some impressions which changes at the end of the story, raise questions about the character and leaves us with unanswered motivations and solutions. Short stories arouse our curiosity and provoke emotions.
