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

Stephen Crane (November 1, 1871 – June 5, 1900) was an American poet, novelist, and short story writer. 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 story of the Open Boat is as realistic as it can be based upon a factual event the author himself was fatefully partaken in. The four survivors of the vessel were aggregates in a dinghy bound by a remote hope of finding a rescue crew in the middle of the ocean that moved them with terrible grace of waves.

Stephen Crane authored novels, short stories, and poetry, but is best . His first book of poetry was The Black Riders (1895), ironic verse in free form.

Stephen Crane authored novels, short stories, and poetry, but is best known for his realistic war fiction. Crane was a correspondent in the Greek-Turkish War and the Spanish American War, penning numerous articles, war reports and sketches. His most famous work, The Red Badge of Courage (1896), portrays the initial cowardice and later courage of a Union soldier in the Civil War. In addition to six novels, Crane wrote over a hundred short stories including "The Blue Hotel," "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky," and "The Open Boat. Crane wrote 136 poems.

The Open Boat" puts you on the ship; you can naturally feel the narration and flow with him as he crashes against the waves. Stephen Crane died at the early age of 29, but in his writing he shows what he'd come through in life

Stephen Crane died at the early age of 29, but in his writing he shows what he'd come through in life. I think his style is mature and hardened up, due to a life spent in difficult times. In "The Blue Hotel", he depicts a brief, brutal and enigmatic moment in the lives of several residents and migrants in Nebraska, a stupid and cruel fight in the midst of a snow blizzard.

Four prized selections by one of America's greatest writers: "The Open Boat," based on a harrowing incident in the author's life: the 1897 sinking of a ship on which he was a passenger; "The Blue Hotel" and "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky," reflecting Crane's early travels in Mexico and the American Southwest; and the novella Maggie: A Girl of. the Streets, a galvanizing portrait of life in the slums of New York City. Usually ships in 24 to 48 hours.

Like many baby boomers, I read "The Red Badge of Courage" in High School. I was an avid reader (still am) and thought it was interesting and well written. I wasn't aware, and never had the interest, to see if Stephen Crane had written other works. My interest in reading "The Open Boat" was piqued when I read on the web that it was one of the books that Ernest Hemingway recommended for aspiring writers. A few Russian works were on the list as well. After reading "The Open Boat" and having previously read Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, I can see the basis of Hemingway's recommendations, and how these works influenced his unique, to English readers, writing style. The novella is written in third person (as are many - but not all - of Hemingway's works). And, the writer does little, or often nothing, to tell the reader what the character(s) are thinking. He lets their dialogue and interactions with other characters and the environment in which they are set let the reader draw their conclusions. Is the character honest? dishonest, brave? a coward? Crane never overtly describes emotions - he let's the dialogue and the scene do that. Hence, like the aforementioned Russian writers, Crane's stories are not "easy" reads. It takes some work. But it is interesting and he is widely viewed as one of America's early great writers. In short, the story involves a group of sailors whose ship has foundered and they are in an "Open Boat" within sight of the shore, but due to heavy seas and currents and having to constantly bail water, they make little progress in reaching the shore. I won't spoil the ending, but the core of the novel is the range of characters and their dialogue. Definitely worth a read.

I bought this for my grandson who had over-the-summer school work. I decided to read it so that I would have some way of knowing whether his written report was good or bad.. Once I got into it, I really liked the story. I thought that the writer's imagery was very good and easy for me to explain to my grandson. Surprisingly, he liked it, too. He generally isn't into this kind of reading, and would probably only have read it if he had to! At least it was a safe read for a 13 yr. old. I didn't have to worry about there being bad language, sexual stuff, violence, etc. Very tame for this day and age and I'm so glad of that! You can read other reviews of the actual storyline just by doing an internet search.

Usually, I don't like short stories, but Crane seems to be very good at writing them. These are short reads, but have enough depth for class discussion. Some writers make the story flat, and only develop one character. Crane, for the most part, flattens the characters and develops the environment around them, so the characters are driven or trapped by it. The stories are written in such a way as to give deeper meaning, as you might see in poetry, but isn't noticeable unless you are looking for it. I would recommend this book.

Weird stories. I usually like stories by authors from "olden days", but this collection is just kind of weird. I wouldn't recommend if you like happy endings.
Friert
With the exception of the more-than-occasional unfashionable word , some of which may in fact have been invented by the author, these short stories fully deserve their persistence in our literary canom.
Isha
Especially important is MAGGIE: A GIRL of THE STREETS. This is a short classic, but it is just as relevant today as when it was written. As you read it, consider the enslavement and sex trafficking of today.

A Classic Set of Short Stories by a Classic Author; " The Open Boat " is one of the best short stories you will ever read; and I picked up this set for a outright steal at Amazon; Try the Sample if you must, but you won't be sorry for your purchase; Three Great Reads
This is an excellent book. It fully equals in quality his Red Badge Of Courage.
