    序言

    短篇小说(the short story)是用散文创作的虚构类叙事作品,通常只限于写单一背景下的一个事件,牵涉到一两个人物的活动,一般认为长度应在l000-20000字,少于l000字的叫做小小说(short short fiction,short shorts或者flash fiction)。多于20 000字的就是中篇小说或者长篇小说了。但有人认为纯粹以字数来分类没有道理,爱伦·坡就提出短篇小说作为一个文类区别于中、长篇小说的应该有其自身的美学特征,他在《创作的哲学》(“The Philosophy of Composition”)一文中指出短篇小说应该具备这样一个特征:要人坐在那里一口气可以读完(One should be able to read it one sitting),要具有一种长篇小说所不可能具备的“印象的统一性”。有人认为短篇小说做到了法国古典戏剧未能真正实行的三一律:表现一天之内一个地方所发生的一个行动,短篇小说处理的是单一人物、单一事件、单一情感,或者由单一情境所引发的一连串情感。

    文摘

    Poe was a complex person, tormented and alcoholic yet also considerate andhumorous, a good friend, and an affectionate husband. Indeed, his painful life,his neurotic attraction to intense beauty, violent horror, and death, and his senseof the world of dreams contributed to his greatness as a writer. In the practicalaffairs of everyday life, in many of the common amenities, in the domestic circle,and in the general give and take of earthly existence, Poe was greatly lacking andfrequently a complete failure. He could not and did not in any sense of the words"get along" with his fellow men. But he certainly was a charm and fascination, amagnetism and a reverse power of antagonism which caused him to be greatly lovedby a few, hated by many, and memorable to everybody.
    As a man Poe wasabnormal, and as a genius unique.Poe was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living throughwriting alone and he was one of the earliest American practitioners of the shortstory and is considered the inventor of the detective-fiction genre.
    He alsocontributed to the emerging genre of science-fiction. His skillfully wrought talesand poems convey with passionate intensity the mysterious, dreamlike, and oftenmacabre forces that pervaded his sensibility. His characters are either grotesquesor the inhabitants of another world than this. Being a master hand at writing theshort story, he is especially "clever at dropping foreshadowing hints at what wouldhappen later and keeping the reader in suspense for as long as possible. He likesto use learned words, which makes reading his stories a little difficult for theaverage reader. But the fulfillment of gaining insight into human psychology givesthe reader enough compensation for the hard labour of "cracking the nut" of hislanguage.
