The first reassessment in over 25 years of one of the most brilliant and fascinating figures in American literature--the novelist-journalist who was born in 1871, six years after the end of the war he memorialized in his universally acclaimed The Red Badge of Courage, and who died of tuberculosis at 28. Benfey explores the uncanny pattern in Crane's life whereby he tried to live the life that he had already written. This pattern is evidenced by Crane's desire to become a war correspondent to see if what he wrote about in The Red Badge of Courage was accurate.
