A Consciousness-Based Look at the "Immaterial Reality" of Story
The term the modern short story is somewhat of a misnomer if we examine the origins of the American short story. Irving, Hawthorne, and Poe, for example, come to us from many different manifestations of story—fable, allegory, romance—story forms that go back to the earliest inceptions of story. These stories also include elements of realism that were beginning to emerge in literature in the early eighteen hundreds, so perhaps modern can be appropriate modifier.
