With an Introduction and Notes by Lionel Kelly, University of Reading. Also included are two short stories: 'The Veteran' and 'The Open Book'. 'The Red Badge of Courage' is one of the greatest war novels of all time. It reports on the American Civil War through the eyes of Henry Fleming, an ordinary farm boy turned soldier. It evokes the chaos and the dull clatter of war: the acrid smoke, the incessant rumours of coming battles, the filth and cold, the numbing monotony, the unworldly wailing of the dying. Like an impressionist painter, Crane also captures the strange beauty of war: the brilliant red flags against a blue sky, steel bayonets flashing in the morning sun as soldiers step off into battle. In the midst of this chaotic outer world, he creates an intricate inner world as he takes us inside the head of Henry Fleming. AUTHOR: Born in Newark, New Jersey in 1871, and dying of tuberculosis in 1900, Stephen Crane's short life saw him making a significant contribution to American literature. His Civil War novel, 'The Red Badge of Courage', is a classic, but it was as a short-story writer that he excelled, writing such notable pieces as 'Maggie - A Girl of the Streets.' Stephen Crane is now recognised as one of a handful of daring innovators who helped shape modern American fiction.
