Read full description of the books:
I HAD first read Frank Richard Stockton's "The Lady or the Tiger?" in an English textbook in the late 1970s and instantly fell in love with it. It was the first short story that I had read in which the ending was left to the logical reasoning of the reader. Today I read it for the second time and loved it even more.
Stockton was the writer of the tale. However, he provides you with a head and a body, but you, the reader, are supposed to provide its tail. You could give the story a tragic ending or you could give it a happy one -- like in most fairy tales.
The Lady, or the Tiger. Which is superimposing upon the other?
But is this really a fairy tale? Or is it more of a dark tale with a gory ending? Is it one where jealousy rules roost? Is it one which will shock the onlookers at a coliseum except for one?
Supposing you were in love with the most handsome man on earth or rather an Adonis, and he was to be married off to a woman who was as beautiful if not more beautiful than you, would you be willing to pass him on to her? Or would you wish that if he did not belong to you, then he should belong to no other woman and, in fact, die through the bone-wrecking jaws and the skin-tearing paws of a wild beast?
Think before you answer, look before you leap, judge before you give your verdict.
The Tiger attacks.
Frank R. Stockton
