In this article, the writer reviews two notable short stories that are excellent examples of "commercial" fiction, "A Municipal Report" and "literary" fiction "A Jury of Her Peers". In brief, the paper outlines character development, plot and theme with an "eye" towards underscoring how William Sidney Porter's "A Municipal Report" is intended as a light-hearted, diversionary romp through a Southern town in early-twentieth century America while Glaspell's "A Jury of Her Peers" is really a troubling look at how men cannot perceive the "trifles" of women's lives - trifles which offer clues about the violence which drives some of them to commit murder.
