Overview

Stephen Crane is widely recognized as a master and innovator of literary naturalism. Among his popular and commonly read works are the novels Maggie: A Girl of the Streets and The Red Badge of Courage and the short stories "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky," "The Blue Hotel," and "The Open Boat." The commentary gathered in this volume offers a wealth of critical analysis that speaks to Crane's relevance and the far-ranging influences of his work. Additional features, including a chronology, an index, and an introduction by esteemed series editor Harold Bloom, will aid students in their assessment of this major American writer.

Bloom's Classic Critical Views presents a selection of the most important enduring literary criticism on the authors most commonly read in high school and college classes today. The series attempts to place these great authors in the context of their time and to provide criticism that has proved over the years to be the most valuable to readers and writers. Selections range from reviews in popular magazines, which demonstrate how a work was received in its own era, to profound essays by some of the strongest critics in the British and American traditions. In addition, each volume contains contributions by a contemporary expert who introduces the most important critical selections, putting them in context and suggesting how they might be used by a student writer to influence his or her own writing.

Stephen Crane 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

The table of contents given for this book is incorrect. It belongs to the book in the Modern Critical series, not this book, which includes criticism of Crane and his work during and shortly after his lifetime. The other book includes contemporary criticism. Since the Barnes & Noble system will not allow a review without a rating, as the editor of this volume, I obviously give it five stars!
