SANCHEZ CARBO, José. Tarjetas de presentación e identidad: Las colecciones de relatos integrados desde los umbrales. Valenciana [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.10, pp.135-152. ISSN 2007-2538.

This article was motivated by the urgent need of analyzing the function of paratexts in every genre, expressed by Gerard Genette in Paratexts, Thresholds of interpretation. Therefore, it is devoted to the review of theparatext's functions in collections of short stories. This genre provides us with some key ideas related to the author's intentions regarding structure or topic and reading. This article selects some paratexts to define which of them contribute to extend the author's ideas and how this is accomplished; to recognize the effects on the reader and to define the uniqueness of the collections of short stories.

Keywords : Collections of Short Stories; Short Story Cycle; Short Story Sequence; Paratexts; Hispano-American short stories of the 20th century.
