Maggie by Stephen Crane

In 1892 Stephen Crane (1871-1900) published Maggie, Girl of the Streets at his own expense. Considered at the time to be immature, it was a failure. Since that time it has come to be considered one of the earliest American realistic novels. Maggie is the story of a pretty child of the Bowery which is written with the same intensity and vivid scenes of his masterpiece -- The Red Badge of Courage. In her short life, Maggie "blossomed in a mud puddle", was driven to prostitution, and died by her own hand while still a teenager.

Crane, who worked as a free lance reporter, was in many ways addicted to the low life of the cities. He died at the age of 29.

About the Author

STEPHEN CRANE was born, in 1871, in Newark, New Jersey. He attempted college twice, the second time failing a theme-writing course while writing articles for newspapers such as the New York Tribune. In 1892 Crane moved to the poverty of New York City's Lower East Side--the Bowery so vividly depicted in Maggie: A Girl of the Streets. Destitute and depressed after the initial failure of that book, Crane had almost decided to abandon writing and find a suitable trade when word came to him that William Dean Howells had read Maggie, and admired it, going so far as to compare Crane to Tolstoy.

So. At the beginning of the year, I developed a huge crush on someone. He was my best frnds friends last year, but I had never talked to him until this year. He's in orchestra, and I'm in band, so we often see eachother at concerts(school). And we've grown to be really good friends. But ya see, when I learn that someone likes me, I just fade away from them. And that's exactly what happened. In February, my best friend told me that he liked me. She DID NOT know that I had a crush on him. She said, "Don't tell anyone. I wasn't even supposed to tell YOU!" Then shortly after that, I've caught him looking at me a lot, becoz idk...I look at my crushes a lot especially when they're not looking(not a stalker xD). I know that sounds creepy, but who doesn't do that? Eh. Well, it's the end of the school year, and I want that friendship to come back. NATURALLY. I don't want to look desparate. I don't know if he still feels for me, coz he's literally all that's on my mind...So I just want to get the friendship back to it's normal place and see if he still likes me. How do I approach him? I haven't talked to him in a while...
