The emerging persona in this first new edition in 30 years is less attractive than the one projected earlier. Crane's disciplined commitment remains constant, but much became hack work, necessary to support his prodigal lifestyle. Too many of his letters to agents and publishers are pitifully alike, hectoring or whining. He ranges from shallow to shabby in his relations with women, and shows an unexpected enthusiasm for war. His letters lack stylistic pungencythe color, irony, and candor of his finest prose. Justifying this collection are new items by Crane and others: his "wife" Cora, his agents and publishers, and literary friends such as Conrad, Howells, and James. Excellent introductions and notes.
