Overview

A major contribution to both the American canon and the literature of war, Stephen Crane's classic novel presents an indelible vision of armed conflict as witnessed by a young soldier. A stylistic achievement marked by its realistic portrayal of the brutality of battle, The Red Badge of Courage questions the cost of war in the face of individual human choice, while offering a penetrating look into the life and mind of a soldier. Esteemed scholar Harold Bloom introduces a new edition of full-length critical essays discussing this enduring work.

Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations, a series of more than 100 volumes, presents the best current criticism on the most widely read and studied poems, novels, and dramas of the Western world, from Oedipus Rex and The Iliad to such modern and contemporary works as William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and Don DeLillo's White Noise. Each volume opens with an introductory essay and editor's note by Harold Bloom and includes a bibliography, a chronology of the writer's life and works, and notes on the contributors. Taken together, Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations provides a comprehensive critical guide to the most vital and influential works of the Western literary tradition.
