5 Classic Short Stories to Read

One of the most popular forms of literature, short stories have staked a major claim in the cultural fabric of America. Shorter than novellas and novels – hence the term “short story” – these works can usually be read in one sitting, whether that be over a lunch break or right before bed.

For those interested in this genre of literature, consider checking out some of these classical short stories:

  • “The Cask of Amontillado”by Edgar Allen Poe – Written by the master of macabre himself, “The Cask of Amontillado”is a narrative of fatal revenge among friends in the catacombs of a wine cellar.

  • “The Legend of Sleepy Hallow” by Washington Irving – This spooky short story focuses on Ichabod Crane, a scorned romantic who meets an untimely fate at the hands of a mysterious headless horseman.

  • “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs – Jacobs’s timeless tale begs the question, “What price would anyone pay to have three wishes?”

  • “To Build a Fire”by Jack London – Set in the Yukon, London’s classic man vs. nature story is about perseverance and triumphing during trying times.

  • “The Gift of the Magi”by O. Henry – A holiday classic, this story centers around a young couple that struggles to afford buying gifts for each other, but eventually, love finds a way to win out.

These five classic short stories and more can be enjoyed from the comfort of our apartments in Mount Dora, FL, which have spacious floor plans and nine-foot ceilings. To learn about the Veranda Apartment Homes community, contact us today.
