noun
Concise and exact use of words in writing or speech.

Welcome to Brevity!

We're going to read a bunch of Gothic and horror short stories. The keyword here is "short". Think of this as a crash source in what makes a short story and how to read them in a literature study!

Some things we'll cover:
What to look for and how to "read" a short story critically
Narrative, structure, POV etc.
Stories by Edgar Allen Poe, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Henry James...
