Short stories[edit]

Some of the works listed under short stories don't really fit into that category, in my view. I'm not familiar with them all, but some definitely looked more like essays or reflections. I was adding a licence template, and in many cases I also added Category:Short stories at the same time. On reflection, I decided that category might not be appropriate, but didn't go back and change the ones I had already done. I just got more fussy in defining "short story" as I went along. Some seemed borderline between essay and short story. When I get a bit more time, I'll take a closer look, and regroup them. Also, there's a red link for "Sketches by Boz", but some of the short stories under "Short Stories" actually come from Sketches by Boz. I hope to start work on that in the next few weeks.

The complete title was:

THE WORKS OF CHARLES DICKENS

IN THIRTY-TWO VOLUMES.

WITH INTRODUCTIONS, GENERAL ESSAY, AND NOTES
BY ANDREW LANG.

VOL. I.

THE PICKWICK PAPERS.

VOL. I.

So in order to obtain a shorter title I have kept only this:

[[Index:Dickens_-_Works,_Lang_edition,_1897,_volume_1.djvu|Works, Lang edition, 1897, volume 1: Pickwick Papers, part I]][1] .

I’m creating the index now:

--Zyephyrus 12:43, 9 May 2011 (UTC)


  1. I have changed Vol 1 into Part 1 because there were two vol 1: the first one was Vol 1 of 32 books: and the second one was Vol 1 of 2 books (The Pickwick Papers), which are the two first books of the 32 books.
