growth of contemporary Spanish fiction, it issuggested that the authors be taken up in
the order in which they aregiven in the Introduction.
To the stories by Spanish authors have been added two bySpanish-American
writers,—the one a native of Costa Rica, the other ofChile. These stories are excellent
and well worth reading. For a fullerstatement regarding them, see the last pages of the
Introduction.
The texts have been taken from standard editions (see the first note toeach story).
The integrity of the texts has been scrupulously preserved,with only the two following
changes: (1) the orthography has been madeto conform to that of the latest editions of
the Dictionary and theGrammar of the Royal Spanish Academy; and (2) a few
omissions from thetexts have been made, all of which are marked by five suspensive
points(.....).
The Vocabulary contains the more irregular verb-forms, and it has alsodescriptions
of the important places and biographies of the noted menand women that are
mentioned in the texts.
The editors offer these Spanish Short Stories as suitable material tobe read
immediately after a beginners' book.
