A reassessment of the the quintessential nineteenth-century American writer chronicles Crane's life and literary work and argues that the writer, successful at a young age, attempted to live the life his works portrayed
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In an effort to clear away the mists surrounding Crane's short life (1871-1899) Benfey ( Emily Dickinson ) advances the interesting hypothesis that Crane's life was foreshadowed and dictated by his fiction. As a reporter Crane experienced the horrors of war (Spanish-American) only after he wrote The Red Badge of Courage ; years before a common-law marriage to a former madam, he wrote Maggie: A Girl of the Streets . Benfey supports his thesis with a detailed analysis of Crane's life and works including the often overlooked poetry ( The Black Riders ) and his less well-known novels and short stories. While he makes a contribution to the evolving scholarly criticism of Crane's writings, his conjectures concerning the writer's life, due to a lack of documentary evidence, remain speculative. Illustrated.
