Overview

This is the first critical study of Stephen Crane's nonfiction work—his urban reportage, travel writing, and war correspondence. Going beyond biography and literary criticism to trace a literary revolution that is a resonating strain in the genealogy of modern American literature, Robertson reveals the broad climate of change that had begun to blur the line between nonfiction writing and fiction in Crane's era. He also explores the life of two writers directly influenced by Crane: Ernest Hemingway and Theodore Dreiser.
