Poe's definition of short shory

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Dear Sirs:

As a student I was given a literary definition of the short story supposedly accredited to Edgar Allen Poe. I would appreciate it if you could forward the same to me.

Many thanks.

You will discover it in Poe's own words in his May, 1842 conspicuous critical review of Hawthorne's "Twice-Told Tales" for the "Graham's Magazine", available, on line at www.eapoe.org, among his "Works" (Literary Criticism), or in many selections from his "Essays", in book-form. Good luck. Yours sincerely, Raven's Shade (Belgium).
