O. Henry

O. Henry is the pen name of William Sydney Porter (1862-1910). He wrote more than three hundred stories which are collected in volumes like Cabbages and Kings, The Four Millions, and The Voice of the City.

O. Henry goes deep into the life of the lower stratum of society and describes them with remarkable sympathy and understanding because he had lived with them for the most part of his life. In his stories, we find the blending of humour and pathos. He has humour but at times humour turns into an extremely tragic ending like in the story of ‘The Gift of the Magi’.

O. Henry is regarded as one of the masters of modern short stories. His stories are remarkable for sudden and unexpected ends that surprise readers.
