Synopsis
Stephen Crane's Whilomville Stories consists of thirteen, self-contained short stories primarily about the children of a sleepy, fictional town called Whilomville. The Whilomville Stories were part of a new subgenre of short stories, generally featured in "quality" magazines like Harper's or the Atlantic Monthly which were linked by a common set of characters and setting. The stories are upbeat, light, and quick reads – yet they are not without the edge of critique, particularly of race relations, indulgent parenting, pointless education systems, and more broadly, the dark side of human nature while engaging readily in a tradition of distinctly American idioms, situations, images, and history. I. THE ANGEL CHILD II. LYNX-HUNTING III. THE LOVER AND THE TELLTALE IV. "SHOWIN' OFF" V. MAKING AN ORATOR VI. SHAME VII. THE CARRIAGE-LAMPS VIII. THE KNIFE IX. THE STOVE X. THE TRIAL, EXECUTION, AND BURIAL OF HOMER PHELPS XI. THE FIGHT XII. THE CITY URCHIN AND THE CHASTE VILLAGERS XIII. A LITTLE PILGRIMAGE
