The Red Badge of Courage

Jan 1981
Paperback

From Library Journal
Like the Carroll volume above, this edition of the seasoned veteran provides a new twist. Crane's Badge was originally serialized in the New York Press in 1894, a year before the story was published in novel form. This volume offers both the slightly different serial version and the finished work. Though every library no doubt has numerous copies of Red Badge, academic and public libraries supporting American literature curricula should pop for this one, too, especially at the price.Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description
Written by Stephen Crane at the age of twenty-one, The Red Badge of Courage is one of the greatest war novels of all time -- so groundbreaking that critics consider it to be the first work of modern American fiction. Although Crane never witnessed warfare, The Red Badge of Courage is a realistic and terrifying account of the Civil War and the fear that a young soldier must face on the battlefield as well as within himself.

Book Description
Yet he also harbors a hidden fear about how he may react when the horror and bloodshed of battle begin. Fighting the enemy without and the terror within, Fleming must prove himself and find his own meaning of valor. Unbelievable as it may seem, Stephen Crane had never been a member of any army nor had taken part in any battle when he wrote The Red Badge of Courage. But upon its publication in 1895, when Crane was only twenty-four, Red Badge was heralded as a new kind of war novel, marked by astonishing insight into the true psychology of men under fire. Along with the seminal short stories included in this volume—“The Open Boat,” “The Veteran,” and “The Men in the Storm”—The Red Badge of Courage unleashed Crane’s deeply influential...

The Red Badge of Courage and Other Stories (Collector's Library Series)

Book Description
The Red Badge of Courage is regarded by many as one of the finest of all American Novels. It tells the story of one soldier's experience of a battle in the American Civil War, and presents warfare in a direct, impressionistic way that was startlingly innovative at the time, and continues to influence writers today. The hero of the tale is Henry Fleming, a youth who has enlisted in the Union Army, seduced by dreams of military glory, but who discovers the real warfare is very different from what he has read about in books. From his nervousness before the battle, to the upheavals, terrors and thrills of conflict, we see events through Henry's eyes, thus giving a particularly vivid sense of what a soldier goes through.

Book Description
The collected short work of an American master, including The Red Badge of Courage and Maggie: A Girl of the Streets. Stephen Crane died at the age of 28 in Germany. In his short life, he produced stories that are among the most enduring in the history of American ficiton. The Red Badge of Courage manages to capture both the realistic grit and the grand hallucinations of soldiers at war. Maggie: A Girl on the Streets reflects the range of Crane’s ability to invest the most tragic and ordinary lives with great insight. James Colvert writes in the introduction to this volume: “Here we find once again the major elements of Crane’s art: the egotism of the hero, the indifference of nature, the irony of the narrator ... Crane is concerned with the moral responsibility of the individual ... (and) moral...

Book Review
Trisha McFarland is a plucky 9-year-old hiking with her brother and mom, who is grimly determined to give the kids a good time on their weekends together. Trisha's mom is recently divorced, and her brother is feuding with her for moving from Boston to small-town Maine, where classmates razz him. Trisha steps off the trail for a pee and a respite from the bickering. And gets lost.

Trisha's odyssey succeeds on several levels. King renders her consciousness of increasing peril beautifully, from the "first minnowy flutter of disquiet" in her guts to her into-the-wild tumbles to her descent into hallucinations, the nicest being her beloved Red Sox baseball pitcher Tom Gordon, whose exploits she listens to on her Walkman. The nature writing is accurate, tense, and sometimes lyrical, from the maddening whine of the no-see-um...
