The short story is an uncharted literary form. To attribute the fact only to the critical confusion which surrounds it explains the problem only by its symptoms: with necessary distancing, the symptom can itself be proof of the fact of the form's resistance to taxonomic categorization. In the absence of a satisfactory method for approaching the form, or a sufficiently convincing body of criticism from which such method can be derived, any study of the short story at the present stage of criticism will have to vacilliate between a textual and a metatextual system of analysis -- the transformational level of which would be a generic study of the short story. The aim of the present study, therefore, is to accomplish the paradoxical task of interpreting a variety of narrative in terms of the critical approach which it most resists.
