About this Item: Signet/New American Library, 1991. paperback. 1st edition. New York. 1991. December 1991. Signet/New American Library. 1st Printing of This Signet Classic Edition. Store Stamp in Front, Otherwise Very Good In Wrappers. ISBN: 0451525523. Introduction By Alfred Kazin. 203 pages. paperback. CE2552. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Published in 1893, Stephen Crane's first novel, MAGGIE: A GIRL OF THE STREETS, shocked a world unprepared for his grim and starkly realistic exploration of the destructive forces within and against us. In MAGGIE, Crane spins an unrelenting tale of a pretty young girl's fall in the turn - of - the - century Bowery. and reveals a sharply critical and provocative depiction of the irresponsibility of men toward women. The five other stories in this collection are tales of quiet tension and raw intensity, vivid sketches of small - town and city life, and war stories imbued with the irony of heroism - revealing the unique and stunning genius of Stephen Crane. In the tradition of Crane's Civil War masterpiece, THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE, 'A Mystery Of Heroism' cuts to the heart of the futility of war. And in 'The Monster', a brilliant novella of heroism and isolation, Crane probes beneath the tranquil surface of small - town life. Brilliantly constructed, extraordinarily lyrical, psychologically penetrating, the stories and novellas in this masterful collection are an enduring testimony to one of America's writers. inventory #31643 Store Stamp in Front, Otherwise Very Good In Wrappers.

About this Item: München, Langen / Müller Verlag, 1955. Condition: Gut. 1. - 4. Tausend. Deutsche Erstausgabe.. 65 Seiten. Guter Zustand. - Stephen Crane (November 1, 1871 – June 5, 1900) was an American author. Prolific throughout his short life, he wrote notable works in the Realist tradition as well as early examples of American Naturalism and Impressionism. He is recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation. The eighth surviving child of Methodist Protestant parents, Crane began writing at the age of four and had published several articles by the age of 16. Having little interest in university studies, he left school in 1891 to work as a reporter and writer. Crane's first novel was the 1893 Bowery tale Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, generally considered by critics to be the first work of American literary Naturalism. He won international acclaim in 1895 for his Civil War novel The Red Badge of Courage, which he wrote without any battle experience. In 1896, Crane endured a highly publicized scandal after appearing as a witness in the trial of a suspected prostitute, an acquaintance named Dora Clark. Late that year he accepted an offer to travel to Cuba as a war correspondent. As he waited in Jacksonville, Florida, for passage, he met Cora Taylor, the madam of a brothel, with whom he began a lasting relationship. En route to Cuba, Crane's ship sank off the coast of Florida, leaving him and others adrift for several days in a dinghy. Crane described the ordeal in "The Open Boat". During the final years of his life, he covered conflicts in Greece and lived in England with Cora, where he befriended writers such as Joseph Conrad and H. G. Wells. Plagued by financial difficulties and ill health, Crane died of tuberculosis in a Black Forest sanatorium at the age of 28. At the time of his death, Crane was considered an important figure in American literature. After he was nearly forgotten for two decades, critics revived interest in his life and work. Crane's writing is characterized by vivid intensity, distinctive dialects, and irony. Common themes involve fear, spiritual crises and social isolation. Although recognized primarily for The Red Badge of Courage, which has become an American classic, Crane is also known for his poetry, journalism, and short stories such as "The Open Boat", "The Blue Hotel", "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky", and The Monster. His writing made a deep impression on 20th-century writers, most prominent among them Ernest Hemingway, and is thought to have inspired the Modernists and the Imagists. .

About this Item: GRIN Publishing, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Auflage.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Hannover (Englisches Seminar), course: Progressivism, Modernity, and the New Woman - US-Literature and Culture, 1880-1910, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Stephen Crane s first novel, Maggie - A Girl of the Streets (1893), is a characteristic specimen of Naturalist or New Realist Literature. The plot is quite different from Victorian Realist literature as well as the Symbolist literature by the likes of Kipling and T.S. Eliott. In fact, Crane purposely wanted to get away from that sort of writing as he states in one of his letters: If I had kept to my clever Rudyard -Kipling style, the road might have been shorter but, ah, it wouldn t be the true road. While the early Realists still concentrated on people from the middle class upward, Crane s characters belonged to the lowest scale in terms of social standing. This meant that the young author had to break with some taboos installed by Victorian writers and as a result from that, he had difficulties in publishing the novel in the first place and also received a lot of hostility from critics. The most basic feature that distinguishes Maggie: A Girl of the Streets from Symbolist or Aestheticist works is its focus on the concept of truth . For Symbolist authors, the highest principle of art was beauty whereas Naturalists saw the need of objective descriptions of life and nature in order to portray them as close to reality as possible. Helga Quadflieg sees this as a replacement for the divine, which both Symbolists and Naturalists did not believe in: Im Gegensatz zum Asthetizismus stellt der New Realism aber nicht beauty an die Stelle fruherer Gottheiten, sondern truth , die [.] den hochsten Stellenwert hat. While Symbolist literature in some cases still contained supernatural apparitions, e.g. in Kipling s The Mystery of Purun Bhagath or The Bull that Thought and Hardy s For.

Stephen Crane (November 1, 1871 - June 5, 1900) was an American novelist, short story writer, poet and journalist.

He is recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Wuppertal, course: Hauptseminar - New York in American Literature, language: English, comment: Gute umfassende Argumentation, gut am Text und an Sekundarliteratur abgestutzt., abstract: Stephen Crane published his first novel Maggie: A Girl of the Streets in March 1893 on his own expenses under the pseudonym Johnston Smith. As a young author who was yet to find a public he was cautious about immediately identifying himself with a work that he himself regarded as shocking (Ziff x) because it tried to show that environment is a tremendous thing [.] and frequently shapes lives regardless (Sorrentino 82). That Maggie is one of the major works to criticize the environment of late 19th century New York City becomes obvious when the reader notices that the protagonist Maggie does neither occur in the first, nor in the last chapter of the novella. Looking more closely at the word environment itself one can observe that the term is ambiguous. On the surface the term seems to describe the external living conditions, namely where and under which circumstances the characters live. But it is not the life in the Bowery and the tenements Stephen Crane is referring to since Maggie does not die of starvation or diseases, but of the mental influences, such as the Church and the theater that constantly affect the people. Exactly this environment, Jacob Riis argues, is indeed a tremendous thing in the world and it frequently shapes the lives of children who grow up in it (LaFrance 42). Nevertheless, the external living conditions determine the way people are and act. Crane depicts the influence the city exerts upon the perception of reality of its inhabitants, and this perception differs very much already from one member of the Johnson family to the other (Schaetzle 19). This is the reason for me to argue that the bad circumstances in the Bow. Seller Inventory # APC9783640924981

About this Item: Dodd, Mead & Co., NY, 1895. Original Printed Wraps. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 2pp. article in this issue of The Bookman: A Literary Journal (Vol. I, No. 4 May 1895). The pagination on this issue runs xiipp. of prelims + pp217-pp290pp. + pp. xiii.-xiv. Illustrated in text, including a nice illustrated ad for "The Monarch: King of Bicycles." This article on Crane is on pages 29-30. Black and white portrait of Crane in text. This is only the second time that a serious article on Crane had been written in the press. The first was in Arena (June 1893) when Hamlin Garland wrote a mixed review of Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, Crane's first novel, which was essentially self published and had a very limited circulation. In this article by Peck (unsigned here, but identified in Stallman's "Stephen Crane: A Critical Bibliography" on page 75), the author praises Maggie and gives a little of the publishing history of it. He mentions the recent publication of "The Black Riders and Other Lines" and he announces the soon to be published Red Badge of Courage, which he says Appleton has "set up" in type and will be releasing in the summer of 1895. This is an early, glowing appraisal of Crane's realism. There are other excellent articles in this issue including "Reminiscences of the Poet Whittier" by Helen Burt, "The First Illustrated Magazine Published in New York" by W.L. Andrews, "A Bibliography of Ibsen" by William H. Carpenter as well as the usual reviews and book news found in such a periodical of the time. Deckled edges. The heel of the spine is torn, extending 2 1\2 inches up the spine. The head of the spine is chipped (3\4 inch). Other than some age toning typical of the time and this publication, this is a very presentable copy of an important announcement concerning Stephen Crane's literary value.

The first appearance of Maggie under Crane's name, the book having been published first in paper in 1893 under the name (chosen from the telephone book) Johnston Smith and with the parenthetic subtitle 'A Story of New York'. With the commercial success of the Red Badge of Courage, Appleton published this hard cover edition; it comes with the curious publisher's note claiming this was the first Maggie to see the light of day. There is more about these matters in Michael Quigley's excellent feature article in Firsts magazine (January 1996). Covers blotched and rubbed (Appleton's rough cloth covers had a way of 'rusting' in a humid atmosphere); front hinge just starting, deckle edges becoming brittle.

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, New York and London, 1899. Original Cloth Binding. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 188+[2 ad] pages with frontispiece and 24 illustrations. Small octavo ( ) bound in red cloth with gilt lettering to cover and spine, black decorative symbols on front cover, deckled edges. First edition. Stephen Crane was an American novelist, short story writer, poet and journalist. Prolific throughout his short life, he wrote notable works in the Realist tradition as well as early examples of American Naturalism and Impressionism. He is recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation. The eighth surviving child of Methodist Protestant parents, Crane began writing at the age of four and had published several articles by the age of 16. Having little interest in university studies, he left school in 1891 and began work as a reporter and writer. Crane's first novel was the 1893 Bowery tale Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, which critics generally consider the first work of American literary Naturalism. He won international acclaim for his 1895 Civil War novel The Red Badge of Courage, which he wrote without any battle experience. In 1896, Crane endured a highly publicized scandal after acting as witness for a suspected prostitute. Late that year he accepted an offer to cover the Spanish-American War as a war correspondent. As he waited in Jacksonville, Florida for passage to Cuba, he met Cora Taylor, the madam of a brothel, with whom he would have a lasting relationship. While en route to Cuba, Crane's ship sank off the coast of Florida, leaving him adrift for several days in a dinghy. His ordeal was later described in The Open Boat. During the final years of his life, he covered conflicts in Greece and lived in England with Cora, where he befriended writers such as Joseph Conrad and H. G. Wells. Plagued by financial difficulties and ill health, Crane died of tuberculosis in a Black Forest sanatorium at the age of 28. At the time of his death, Crane had become an important figure in American literature. He was nearly forgotten, however, until two decades later when critics revived interest in his life and work. Stylistically, Crane's writing is characterized by vivid intensity, distinctive dialects, and irony. Common themes involve fear, spiritual crises and social isolation. Although recognized primarily for The Red Badge of Courage, which has become an American classic, Crane is also known for short stories such as The Open Boat, The Blue Hotel, The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky, and The Monster. His writing made a deep impression on 20th century writers, most prominent among them Ernest Hemingway, and is thought to have inspired the Modernists and the Imagists.
