    The O. Henry Museum offers a look into the life of William Sidney Porter, the man who became famous under the pen name O. Henry. Known as "the master of the short story," Porter lived in this 1886 Queen Anne-style cottage from 1893 to 1895. His home has since been restored and now contains artifacts and memorabilia from Porter's life in Austin. The O. Henry Museum is a National Register Property and a National Literary Landmark of the City of Austin.?

    During his more than thirteen years in Austin, Porter worked in a variety of occupations. Some of his experiences as a pharmacist, draftsman, bank teller, and reporter would later figure in his short stories. His first nationally known short story, "The Miracle of Lava Canyon", was published before leaving Texas in 1897. His pen name, "O. Henry," first appeared in the short story, "Whistling Dick's Christmas Stocking," published in 1899

    The O. Henry Museum offers writing programs for adults and children.

Henry Museum Writing Club, is a six week workshop that includes an anthology of the students work and a reception at Barnes and Noble Westlake.

    作者簡介

      歐.亨利(O. Henry)本名威廉.西德尼.波特(William Sydney Porter),1862年生於美國北卡羅來納州,父親是個醫生,因此他十五歲起,便在藥房裡當學徒,藥房經常聚集著各式各樣的人物,或打牌,或談論時事,也成為後來歐亨利筆下最好的題材。之後他曾在西部農場牧牛兩年,對西部生活也累積了不少經驗,在此同時,他更學習多種語言,從他作品中的用字遣詞,便可窺見其對語言的天分。

      然而歐亨利生命中最大的轉捩點,是1896年任職奧斯丁銀行時,被控盜用資金而判刑。他在監獄裡的藥局做事,一邊寫小說透過朋友寄往雜誌社發表,漸漸地開始採用「歐亨利」這個筆名,出獄後則專心寫作。歐亨利的犯罪究竟屬實,抑或是冤獄,如今有多種說法,但命運無疑幽了他一默,這場牢獄生活將他從小小的專欄作家,搖身一變成為世界文學巨擘。

      歐亨利以美國紐約小市民的生活為題材,描述資本社會中,金錢至上的現實面,他寫出市井小民「含淚微笑」的心聲,,因此素有「曼哈頓的桂冠詩人」之稱。他筆下的人物無不栩栩如生、躍然紙上。他的筆觸幽默、佈局詭異,結局「出人意表」,其獨樹一格的寫作手法,為美國文壇注入新風貌,也讓他在世界文壇上佔有一席之地。
