I was going to start reading some short stories, two as a matter of fact, by two different writers from a specific list. James Joyce, E.A. Poe, Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorn, James Baldin, Alice Walker, William Faulkner, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Stephen Crane, John Updike, Bret Hart, Sarah Orne Jewett and Anton Chekov. It's for my english class, I'm going to be doing a report on them soon so why not just start now you know? I have a bunch of names already from some of those guys but I just need some help since you guys might've read them already, can anyone tell me 2 of these which share the same theme/conflict? James Joyce: Araby The Sisters Eveline A Little Cloud Counterparts Clay The Dead Stephen Crane: An Experiment in Misery The Open Boat The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky The Blue Hotel The Little Regiment The Price of the Harness A Detail A Mystery of Heroism A Gray Sleeve The Pace Of Youth Three Miraculous Soldiers One Dash-Horses The Mesmeric Mountain Nathaniel Hawthorn: My Kinsman, Major Molineux Young Goodman Brown The Birth-mark Rappaccini’s Daughter The Minister’s Black Veil The May-Pole of Merry Mount The Snow-Image Lady Eleanore's Mantle Alice Doan's Appeal Ethan Brand Wakefield The Gentle Boy Endicott and the Red Cross Feathertop The Gray Champion The Great Carbuncle The Great Stone Face The Ambitious Guest The Wives of the Dead Thanks a lot.
