    I have had a number of customers reuest one or another SEAGULL READER Finally I noticed that the store was returning THE SEAGULL READER STORIES Thinking this was a shame I decided to buy one I'm glad I did It is what it says it is An anthology lightly supplemented by editorial apparatusThese are pretty famous stories but the introduction biographical sketches and glossary are uniue in that they are to the point informative and somehow fresh His introduction concludes with a little arrow pointing He wants us to read Frank O'Connor's Guests of the Nation I read it today I defy you not to be moved by it Kelly has also included a masterful story by that other O'Connor whose first name begins with F It is one of the most memorable stories in all literatureW W Norton publishes THE SEAGULL READER series I think there's some idea at Norton that textbooks the size of the Manhattan phone book with pages as thin as butterfly wings are a bit forbidding THE SEAGULL READER has thin pages but they're no thicker than a composition notebook The covers are indeed designed to look like composition notebooks These are marketed toward students When I was a student Norton Anthologies were not only huge they featured covers by Edward Hopper Maybe the Hopper Estate is beginning to charge? So Norton's gone thrifty One thing though Norton should stop shrink wrapping these Let the people shopping at Barnes and Noble have a peek inside READER is in the title after all

    I read some short stories in this book which were all about different things but were all interesting in their own sense I like short stories in general because I feel like they get to the point faster than I regular book does I liked all of the stories that I read even the ones that just felt like little poems They were all about the way a new experience made someone feel or how they had already felt One example of external conflict was in the story by Joyce Carol Oates when Connie was trying to fight the fact that the boy who was waiting for her at her door would not leave her alone until she gave into him It was kinda scary to read because I didn't know how far he was gonna take his obsession An example of the internal conflict was the story by Kate Chopin when the lady her that her husband dies and she doesn't know how to cope She later finds out that he was not really dead and dies of to much joy That was really intense to think about because she just had so many emotions going on on died because of her happiness

    Wow what a mix of authors and stories Of the 29 the best in my opinion Stephen Crane's The Open Boat; Tillie Olsen's I Stand Here Ironing; Alice Walker's Everyday Use; and Updike's AP And the worst James Joyce's Araby and Chinua Achebe's Uncle Ben's Choice More than some stories in this collection nearly made me ill so violent dark and too realistic It is interesting to wonder what makes people tick how they create such things Especially Charlotte Perkins Gilman and her The Yellow Wallpaper shiver Never heard of Alice Walker but her Everyday Use from 1973 is a good story Another poster Frederick says O'Connor's A Good Man is Hard to Find is one of the most memorable stories in all literature I guess I can agree on this It is written very well and it certainly held my attention but it's scary violent and too realistic on random acts of violence for my comfort

    I had to read 25 short stories from this book for my LIT class Most were amazing and some were totally confusing It's different learning how to read something with an analytical mind instead of just for enjoyment I understand why my teacher chose this book because the stories all provoke higher level thinking You have to think outside the box to understand some of them Of the stories I read the 2 most profound for me were Cathedral and Hills Like White Elephants I highly recommend them


  9. Larry Larry says:

    I recently compared a handful of textbooks winnowed down from a much larger list for an Intro to Fiction class This one did make the final cut Not bad but like many collections of this sort too many 'iconic''canonic' stories and too few surprisesPluses are the clean design easy on the eyes and relatively affordable price


  10. Katy Katy says:

    Classic oft anthologized stories which are good for upcoming fiction writers Some of my favorites are What You Pawn I Will Redeem Sherman Alexie; The Yellow Wallpaper Charlotte Perkins Gilman; Hills Like White Elephants Ernest Hemingway; Where Are You Going Where Have You Been Joyce Carol Oates; and AP John Updike
