1921. Crane, the iconoclastic novelist, poet, short-story writer, journalist, and war correspondent who propelled American literature into the modernist age. His second novel, The Red Badge Of Courage, brought him international fame.

All have been gathered from out-of-print volumes and old magazine files. Contents: Stephen Crane: An Estimate; The Open Boat; The Reluctant Voyagers; The End of the Battle; The Upturned Face; An Episode of War; An Experiment in Misery; The Duel That Was Not Fought; A Desertion; A Dark-Brown Dog; The Pace of Youth; Sullivan County Sketches: A Tent in Agony; Four Men in a Cave; The Mesmeric Mountain; The Snake; London Impressions; and The Scotch Express. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty or faded. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
