Which O Henry short story is your favourite? Why?
O Henry wrote many wonderful short stories. I f you are to pick one - just one - which one would it be?
GREAT QUESTION! Love O Henry and have had a penchant for writing short stories with an O Henry twist when I was younger. The Gift of the Magi is my favorite: self less love.
Gift of the Magi. I love it because it illustrates the absolute willingness to sacrifice for the one you love--and also how doing so can give you great pleasure.
Also--I believe that is the only O. Henry story I've read.
The Ransom of Red Chief. It is a Classic. Funny, engaging, a real page turner. Also like The Last Leaf, A story of love, friendship and sacrifice.
O'Henry is one of my favourite writers. As stated already, my favourite is "The Gift of the Magi."
I think 'the gift of the magi' would be my choice
now dont ask for the reason
