Stephen Crane - LIFE STORIES
 
 
6/5/1900     Stephen Crane: Red Badge to White Ribbon
Stephen Crane's fame comes from one, full decade: first novel at nineteen, Red Badge of Courage and his Black Riders poetry at twenty-four, dead at twenty-nine. From the start, and throughout, "He could never be told, tamed, trained or trammeled," said a classmate at one of the two universities where Crane never went to class; 'born to run,' said the other Asbury Park poet a century later. . . .
6/21/1982     Crane's Restored Red Badge
On this day in 1982 Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage was published by Norton and Company in "the only complete edition from the original manuscript." Previous editions had incorporated cuts and changes that had been made in 1895 -- changes which distorted or muddied Crane's theme, and which were perhaps forced upon him by his first editor.

The Red Badge of Courage: Text and Critical Reviews
Offers a searchable version of the electronic text, a selection of early reviews, information about the battle at Chancellorsville, and analysis:

"Crane attempts to portray authentic experience through a series of vivid impressions. Fighting in a war without identifiable territorial objectives, Henry senses a loss of individual control and purpose. He acknowledges the irrelevance of rational interpretation and feels acutely the failure of political or religious or philosophical language to make personal catastrophe intelligible. This breakdown of narrative explanation is embodied in Crane's fragmented, discontinuous rendition of Henry's experiences. Red Badge re-presents visual representations of the Civil War in order to critique contemporary attitudes about heroism and nationalism. As such, it is hostile toward the cultural situation of America at the end of the 19th century--the unresolved, unintelligible catastrophe of the Civil War haunted urban unrest, impersonal mass society, political corruption, and social backsliding on efforts toward emancipation."
