Stephen Crane




A man said to the universe:

"Sir I exist!"

"However," replied the universe,

"The fact has not created in me

A sense of obligation."


A Brief Look

Stephen Crane was born in 1871 in Newark, New Jersey. He was the 14th child of a large and religous family. He spent time studying at Lafayette College and Syracuse University, and eventually moved to New York after his mother passed away in 1890. Crane passed away at an early age and he also had family members who met with tragic ends to their lives.


One of Crane's most well known works is the war novel The Red Badge Of Courage . The stripped own style and realistic account of a soldier's experiences in wartime had some readers believing it was written by a veteran soldier. Crane had never seen combat and explained that the football field provided the inspiration for his descriptions of war.


The Blue Hotel is one of Crane's most compelling stories, even though it does not garner as much attention as some of his other works. The events that unfold between the assorted group of characters display Crane's ability to look into the human psyche and deal with issues of honor and integrity.
