Hubert Crackanthorpe (1870–1896) made a critically significant contribution to the evolution of the modernist short story in Britain. His unexplained death in Paris at the age of 26 cut short a highly promising literary career.

Crackanthorpe’s collections of short stories – the strikingly realist Wreckage (1893), the psychologically complex Sentimental Studies (1895), and the posthumous Last Studies (1897) – together with the prose poems of Vignettes (1896), were much admired by Henry James and his contemporaries, Dowson, Johnson, and Symons, as the work of a leading, innovative writer of critical Decadence. Indeed, his stories combine an unrelenting realism with a conscious aestheticizing of their often troubling, bleak subject matter.

As co-editor of the short-lived periodical The Albermarle and campaigning literary journalist, Crackanthorpe was a key critical participant in central literary and artistic debates of the early 1890s: ‘facts’ versus ‘effects’ in literature; the efficacy of realism/ naturalism; questions of taste, ‘reticence’ and the handling of controversial subject matter.

This fully annotated, critical text comprises the most extensive collection to date of Crackanthorpe’s writing. As well as uncollected stories, the volume includes a short story never previously published in book form. This edition also contains a selection of Crackanthorpe’s critical writings and a bibliographical survey of his work.

William Greenslade is Emeritus Professor of English at the University of the West of England, Bristol. Emanuela Ettorre is Associate Professor of English at the University ‘G. d’Annunzio’, Chieti-Pescara.
