The Short Story America Classics Library features hundreds of stories, by American and World authors. From familiar favorites to those you may not have discovered yet, all of these tales are well worth reading, remembering, studying or discussing with friends or classmates. Some longer stories like Crane's "The Red Badge of Courage," Tolstoy's "The Death of Ivan Ilyich," Conrad's "Heart of Darkness," Kafka's "The Metamorphosis," and many others are here. Even Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" are here in the Classics Library, for your convenience. All stories in the Classics Library are in PDF format for your printing convenience, whether for bedtime reading or for highlighting and margin notes in the classroom or reading club. There is even great philosophical literature like Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, Emerson's "Self-Reliance" and Thoreau's "Civil Disobedience" on the "shelves" of the Classics Library.
